Don’t let the name fool you—Ruins Park (Parque das Ruínas)—isn’t just some abandoned relic of a bygone era. Well, the venue had been the mansion of a well-known Rio socialite, Laurinda Santos Lobo, whose early 20th-century balls were legendary. After her death in 1946, the house fell into disrepair, only to be salvaged by the city government in the 1990s and turned into this increasingly popular exhibition space and live music venue, complete with an al fresco café and one of the best views in the city.

Perched high atop one of the quieter hillsides of Santa Teresa, the restored complex features a beguiling mash-up of 19th- and 20th-century architecture, with an exposed brick façade and colonnaded veranda standing warmly next to Modernist metal and glass accents. During the summer, the outdoor concert series includes local jazz and samba bands, as well as children’s performances that add a decidedly familial air to an otherwise romantic ambiance. Be sure not to miss the marvelous weekend brunch served up with a stunning panorama of the marvelous city.

1 day in Brazilian Monmartre: Tour & Workshop (make your own souvenir)

1 day in Brazilian Monmartre: Tour & Workshop (make your own souvenir)

Explore the charming neighborhood of Santa Teresa known as the Monmartre carioca with its secrets unknown to tourists and at the end of the day participate in a unique experience totally different from the activities that foreigners have contact in Rio. During the clay workshop you will be in a cozy atmosphere. It is creative that you will learn new techniques and have new artistic skills and will also produce your own souvenir by joining a worldwide DIY trend. Take home a piece that will perpetuate memories and be different from the traditional Chinese souvenirs that most tourists buy on the streets of Rio. * After finishing the clay piece it takes 10 days to finish the art in the studio (drying, burning in oven and enamel). If you are in Rio after this period, delivery to your hotel is free. Shipping to your country will be charged extra fee. * The workshop is available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian.
