The area
Neighbourhood: Centro
Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born. With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living proof that the old and the new can live together harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where all major companies house their offices. However, the region isn’t restricted to businesses. Gems such like the “Paço Imperial,” which is a cultural centre that used to serve as a residence for governors of Brazil, can be found here. Pedra do Sal, a Monday night street party, is also in this neighbourhood. This landmark is the birthplace of samba and is famous for its “roda de sambas” (“dance circles”). Stop in for one and get closer to discovering where Brazilian happiness comes from.

Great to stop in, wish we could have seen a concert here
Feb. 2020
Stopped in here walking from the Escalaria Selaron to the Cathedral. Highly recommend making a stop in to look around while you are in Lapa. Very cool space, very welcoming, and we saw a cool exhibit about the development of Rio from the 18th century to now. It was day time so not much more to do than walk around, but they have concerts and theater here - would have definitely come for that if we had time.
