    The most beautiful site and Pandey and one of the most beautiful of the north side. Deserves the view both of Catholics as non-Catholics. The shrine still still have a beautiful view of Rio de Janeiro

    All very clean and organized, situated in a green area, where we exercise our faith and spirituality, as well as meet a tourist spot of the river. You can climb to the shell named Jerry Adriani, where now perform masses and concerts. There's parking, gift shop, snack bar, restrooms. Then, for those who do not want to raise the massive staircase has a cable car to go to the SHRINE. It's absolutely beautiful, surrounded by a beautiful panoramic view of the city.

    Always loved this church, I live my life at her feet. But along with the new priests came the disrespect, sound absurdly high. Every Sunday the inhabitants are forced to wake up at 6:30! Sleep and study only when the Church allows. That's not happened at the time of the late Father Paul.

    In addition to the beautiful view, be here at the Basilica of our Lady of Penha is to be in harmony with God, with the brothers and with nature. The Sunday morning masses are true rain of blessings. Holy place.

    A sacred place, history and blessed. A beautiful place, with an excellent view from the top of the Shrine Basilica of Penha. The staircase to the Sanctuary has carved on stone steps 382. Highly recommended for those who like historical places! In addition to being a place for tourist who comes to the city of Rio de Janeiro. Show-Just joy.

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.
