Arco do Teles, Rio de Janeiro
(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.

  • ARC Teles is like the door to a Bohemian and colorful in the Centre of the city of Rio. To cross their beautiful stone arch and walk 1 block, the atmosphere and colorful are present in this Bohemian area and with a great atmosphere: bars and restaurants adorn its stone streets offering typical dishes of the South American country or just a refreshing drink while referred to the gait of the local people and tourists. Good choice to taste the typical feijoada (typical dish of Brazil).

  • The arch leads to a platter that breathes history and culture of an era, the House that lived throughout Carmem Miranda surrounding bars frequented by various tribes, merchants, shopkeepers, civil servants, the town's residents and visitors.
