This has to be one of the most imaginative artistic installation that I have been to in Latin America - except for Fusterlandia the Jose Fuster House in Cuba. Jorge Selaron started covering these steps with tiles, some of his own creation but many sent...More

Fabulous area of street art..not the best neighborhood. Be cautious. The steps and walls are covered in tile from all over the world. The artist includes Seleron, depicts himself on the body of his pregnant girlfriend..She and his child died and became his recurring theme....More

We recommend visiting this monument during the off season to enjoy it without hundreds of people taking selfies!! :) It's in the rough part of the city, but well worth the trip!

This place was part of a tour i booked from the Hotel. Interesting to see but i believe Best when you have a guide explaining you story of the place.

Very busy, if you want your photo taken sitting on steps, you might have to wait a while. Tip: go a few flights up where no one or very few is waiting.

The collection of tiles from all over the world comes together in a colourful spectacle in the Selaron Steps. Worth a visit for sure, to see the results of the dedicated years of work spent creating the steps.

Nearby
Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.

None, but you can take a cab to the base of the steps and view from the street.

It will cost you but take a taxi. It isn't in the safest neighborhood and there are not signs to get there.
