Stepping out of the metro station at Cinelandia is like stepping back a hundred years in time, in terms of architecture. In the early 20th century, a series of monumental buildings were erected around the square, including the Municipal Theater, the Brazilian National Library, the Rio de Janeiro Municipality, and the Higher Court. Although the square is officially called Praça Floriano Peixoto, the square is more commonly known as Cinelandia ("Cinema Land") after Spanish entrepreneur Francisco Serrador built a series of tall buildings that concentrated the best cinemas of the city. Most of the cinemas are now closed, but you will still find Cinelandia a lively spot in Rio thanks to its bars, restaurants, and cultural attractions.

  • Cute neighborhood, very central and interesting for a ride. Visit the Cultural Center Luiz Severiano Ribeiro (does not take more than 20 minutes and worth), and give a view of all the buildings that stand on the square. It has great places to eat, and is located next to the Lapa neighborhood.
