All reviews jorge selaron colorful tiles santa teresa lapa area street art worth a visit interesting place selaron steps take your time walk up take pictures chilean artwork tourists tribute neighborhood rio
A highlight of the Rio walking tour these steps are a fun stop. Seleron spent years changing an ordinary city stairway to a colorful tiled achievement. Great spot for photos and to simply take in his artistic achievement.
We were told to be very careful in this area due to pickpockets & also not to wander to far up the stairs because it was dangerous. It was very crowded so it was nerve racking making sure no one was trying to stay anything....More
i was taken here by a friend, well not much to see actually. the place is dirty, and there is nothing particularly nice to see except for lots of dirty tiles. ok some may say that this is street art..... mmhhhh cannot really disagree, but...More
This is well worth the stop and we were lucky enough that it wasn't that busy, but if you are interested in a selfie on the 'rio' labelled spot, there is a line. We went past the line to go up and a lot of...More
Dont expect to see a Miracle, they are just Stairs that are covered with colourful Ceramic but they look Beautiful! And you feel the authenticity in them.
When you are there, don’t get off track as the neighborhood is not that safe, specially girls taking...More
this is an incredibly popular place where there are thousands of tiles everywhere from all over the world. Go early, if possible, because later it will be very hard to sit on the steps to take of pictures of yourself with the tiles below that...More
I loved this place!
It was busy with tourists, street vendors, residents etc. You could, for a few minutes, picture life in the lower socioeconomic status neighborhoods...but jazzed up with art and bursts of bright colours.
The artists vision is commendable!
What started off as a small decoration of steps ended up being a massive project from tiles from all over the world. Now world famous and to see this colorful work of art was a great experience. Fairly busy and had no problems in taking...More
Escadaria Selarón or Selaron’s steps have times from all over the world. It was fun to look for one from my country. If you go with one of the walking tours, then you get to hear the story. We went twice - at night with...More

did the one you saw happened yesterday (aug 21) around 2pm? asian guy with black shirt, black shorts, and black backpack with a baseball cap? if it was, it's me. if not, then it's worse coz it only means it happen way too often, regardless of time and crowd. I was able to keep my bad with me as I fought back, but they took my camera. I went to a public hospital for emergency, then went to a private hospital for tomography. God blessed as there's nothing serious. Just had to take painkillers & antibiotics and had a shot of anti-tetanus, as I had two wounds that had to be stitched. I posted this morning as a public service announcement but still pending approval. I'm going to our embassy later, and make a police report. Thanks a lot for the concern!
