It’s beginning to be one of the most famous landmarks in Rio but at the moment it’s not as busy yet. Beautifully coloured steps only a few minutes walking away from Gloria metro station. The area itself looks quite rough but well worth it!
Yes you really should visit Escadaria Selarón, walk them all the way up to the top and go further into Santa Teresa and enjoy the views and cosyness of the area.
The street in front is already a great entrance with the graffiti-art (yes, really...More
It’s a really cool place, because of its story and being so picturesque became a must when in Rio, but for the same reason it’s too crowded!! If you want a nice picture without making the line, would try and go there first in the...More
If you go all the way to Rio, don’t leave without visiting the steps. A glorious tribute to the whole world nestled at the foot of Santa Teresa. A staircase made with tiles from all the corners of the earth and there’s no place else,...More
These stairs are a really cool thing to see in Rio... as a bonus, there is a lot of street art nearby as well. The stairs go up about 30 flights and have some very unique tiles in them.
For the most part, the people...More
This is really a one off and a work of art showing a selection of tiles from around the world.
Absolutely beautifully done - I only hope that someone maintains this for future generations to enjoy the work of Jorge Selaron.....
It’s is a shame to have to reiterate what many have said about Rio but you do need to stay aware of your environment. This place in many ways is less publicised than some of the more iconic Rio landmarks but it is a must...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!
