“If you do go to Santa Teresa one day, have lunch at Bar do mineiro and order a Feijoada. Do not eat the crazy meat that comes inside , or order a plain version. But the beans and bean sauce are fabulous. This is a very typical place in Santa teresa and a great visit.”

Bar
“Gema means "egg yolk" in Brazilian Portuguese, and the Carioca or Rio native is hence the "yolk" of the Rio de Janeiro egg. Carioca da Gema is a smaller and more intimate club and was one of the first Samba Dance Clubs to open in Lapa.”

Concert Hall
“One of the most traditional concert halls in the country. Cecilia Meireles was a name that was imposed without any effort on the recognition of his talent and admiration of the country. She died in November 1964. She was a poet of Brazil and dear friend of Carlos Lacerda. It was no wonder, then, that the governor wanted to honor her in some way. The opportunity came when, finally, the property has gained a musical identity and had to give it a name. Lacerda didn´t have to think too much. The room name was Cecilia Meireles Concert Hall. In Lapa, the city center, the room became, over the years, an important space of training and dissemination of concert music in Rio de Janeiro.”
