Arco do Teles, Rio de Janeiro

4.2
Located in the center of Rio among colonial buildings, you will find Arco do Teles, the last of the many arches that once existed in town. Feel how things were in Rio back in the 1910’s as you walk under this arch set between buildings 32 and 34. The residents of Rio flocked there in devotion to an image of Our Lady of Joy, hidden in a crevice within the arch. Stroll through the arch surrounded by good food, wine shops, and libraries. Enjoy a beer during happy hour, a popular spot for locals to meet after work.

  • In addition to being a historical site in the city of Rio de Janeiro, the arc of the Teles worth a visit by bars and restaurants. It's worth the space with friends and maybe at some point you're in another era.

  • Historic site and beautiful architecture ... I loved walking the narrow streets full of restaurants and bars with their external remedies and good music//some streets were badly cared for//at lunch and late afternoon gets busy ... you can access the street do Ouvidor or Praça XV.

  • When we were doing the free walking tour we met this fascinating anchored downtown area at the time, it is an area with small cobbled streets full of bars that will transport you to another era, in fact were shooting a movie, anecdotally, there lived the famous Carmen Miranda, we are left with the desire to visit the area at night due to lack of time. I recommend not to miss that visit.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
