  • The monastery of São Bento do Rio de Janeiro and its wooded spaces, is definitely a must for the human being, to the — or non-Catholics. Is peace of mind for the spirit. A lot of art and beautiful masses Sung. Worth knowing, and bring positive light to our lives — in turbulent days.

  • Not easy to find! Located on a hill, the monastery houses a sober Church outside but very richly decorated inside. We like it or not the gilded with excess but in any case the top of the Hill is a nice safe haven!

  • Place of peace in the Centre of Rio de Janeiro, the mass, Sung during the week and on Sundays is unmissable. The bookstore next to have audio guides and books on the construction and restoration of the Church.

  • A location not far from the Centre worth escaping to meditate.

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.
