Experience

Highlights
  • Visit São Bento Monastery with its beautiful church
  • See Santa Teresa neighborhood with old houses and cobblestone streets
  • Enjoy the Hippie market with thousands of items for all tastes
Full description
The São Bento Monastery was built in 1671 by the Benedictine Order. The monastery church is gorgeous and rich and its interior is covered in gold powered. Every Sunday the Benedictine monks present the traditional Mass in a Gregorian chant at 10:00 sharp.

Santa Teresa, a bucolic district on a hillside, is known for its crocked houses, steep streets and tile decorated stairways, Rio’s bohemian neighborhood. Rio’s Santa Teresa tram (when available), has been preserved both as a piece of history and as a quick, fun, cheap way of getting to one of the most quirky parts of town.

The Hippie fair has become a mandatory touristic visit. There the visitors will find bronze and wood sculptures, oil paintings, silver objects, hand-painted porcelains, fabrics, leather clothes, shoes, handbags, several souvenirs and typical Brazilian food and handicraft of all kinds. This 4-hour tour operates on Sundays and it includes hotel pickup and drop off. A minimum of 2 people per booking is required.
