Arco do Teles, Rio de Janeiro

(4.2/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Magical place. Travessa do trade with the conservadíssimos Houses. A surprise: there lived a Little remarkable Carmen Miranda. Wonderful!!!!! And better yet in the midst of Carnival revelers in costume. It was an incredible experience.
