Art & Design Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Perched high above the city on a hill, Santa Teresa is Rio’s bohemian heart. With its stepped streets, including the famous Selarón Steps, this neighborhood plays on its resemblance to Montmartre in Paris, and is home to countless artist studios and art galleries. As you wander along the winding streets, make sure to visit Casalegre, a guesthouse that also houses an exhibition space, where you can discover Rio’s up-and-coming young talents, and then stop off at La Casa da Ladeira, dedicated to video and photography. Every year, the Festival Arte de Portas Abertas gives visitors the chance to explore the studios of Santa Teresa’s artists.
