4.2/5 based on 150+ 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.

  • The arc of Talwar, in my opinion, is a must in the visitor center of the River pro. Nice place to admire the old architecture and also learn a little about the history of the site, at certain points of the streets and corners there are signs telling you a little of what was the region in ancient times. In addition to a Bohemian programming, with music, food, drink. There are also cultural events as for example every 2nd Saturday of the month, well below the arch there is the Samba de Roda in the late afternoon. Is very nice!

  • Who goes to the city centre should not look upon the Arc of Teles, with its centuries-old architecture, friendly atmosphere and good dining options with outdoor tables.
