Profile: Santa Teresa

Profile: Santa Teresa

Santa Teresa has been known to attract artists, scholars, and politicians. This central Rio neighborhood sits atop Santa Teresa hill, and has been home to the U.S. Consulate General Rio de Janeiro since 1971.

If you’re just visiting, explore the boutiques, picturesque streets, mosaic steps, and paintings, but stop every now and then to enjoy an appetizer or a cocktail at open-air restaurants such as Aprazivel. Tucked away in a jungle-like setting, Aprazivel overlooks the city and features Brazilian favorites like fried corn-flour polenta rissolle stuffed with spicy minced meat as well as goat, lamb, and fish dishes.
