This was included in the guided tour I booked. To be honest I was unsure what this was but glad we stopped here. The tour guide explained the step and how long it took to construct. It was very busy as it is a very...More
Well worth a visit when in Rio, the steps go up a fairly steep hill buts it's worth the climb if you are able to do so. It does get fairly busy around the spot where people like to take photos but there appears to...More
Artist collected and was sent tiles from all over the world and incorporated into an alley way stair case. History of government efforts to destroy and refusal to support maintenance is also very interesting
You might visit Rio to see Sugar Loaf and Christ the Redeemer but you will remember these steps for a long time as well.
I expected something colourful and touristy. It was colourful but I was really captivated by the cheery atmosphere on the steps....More
Wish we went really early, to avoid crowds. It is fantastic, lots of opportunity for photos. Ideal to both take large view and then really spend time looking at all the tile details. Can combine with aqueduct, tram ride, check out Lapa, or Santa Teresa.
The Escadaria is definitely worth a visit. Get a caipirinha at the bottom and take your time climbing up the stairs admiring the different tiles. You’ll most likely find one from places you’ve been to, know or even your country.
If this type of street art is your thing then by all means make it part of your wish list, but we did it as part of our day tour which is a good way to see it.

On visiting Rio for the first time in May, the Selaron steps were on our must see list.
On visiting the steps, the area was extremely busy but is a vibrant, colourful area full of atmosphere, artists and lots of things to see.

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!
