    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,
