Historical Rio

The drive from the South Zone towards the Centre is quite spectacular with views of Sugar Loaf, the Christ Statue and the Guanabara bay. As you approach the centre, you pass the Marina da Glória on your right and, on the left, you can see the simple chapel of Nossa Senhora da Gloria do Outeiro beautifully situated up on the hill.

Central Rio, which is a busy mixture of historic buildings overshadowed by high rise office blocks, is the main business area. The down town area is where the 400-year-old city started to grow and is nowadays a very busy trade centre. Despite this hectic movement, you can discover the most interesting places, combining baroque and modern architecture, little cafes, and pedestrian streets.

The historical centre of Rio houses an impressive complex of colonial Baroque architecture, including the Royal Palace, the National Historical Museum, the Candelaria Church and the Municipal Theatre, a two-thirds replica of the Paris Opera inaugurated in 1909.
