Tiles from everywhere. Try to find the tile from your city while walking by the stairs. Best to visit in the morning, but it’s safe to visit on weekends night as well.

One of Rio's best loved attractions in Lapa neighborhood, the steps leading up from Rua Joaquim Silva became a work of art when Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón decided to cover the steps with colorful mosaics. A dedication to the Brazilian people, the 215 steps are a vivid riot of color.

Outdoor Sculpture
“The main symbol of the bohemian neighborhood. Rio’s old Carioca Aqueduct, known Lapa Arches, is one of the best known sites in the city, as well as one of the most representative symbols of old Rio, fully preserved to this day at the bohemian neighborhood of Lapa. The limestone structure in a Romantic style features 42 large double arcs and seeing glasses in the superior area. The Lapa Arches are considered the architectural piece in Brazil built during the colonial period. Around it are two of the most important houses of the city: Fundição Progresso e Circo Voador.”
