One is the 17th Century church, Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Glória ou Outeiro, which sits in an elevated position and is easily recognised by its whitewashed walls. It’s considered one of the most important pieces of colonial architecture in the city. Also in Glória is Rio de Janeiro’s Modern Art Museum, which is a preeminent cultural institution in Brazil and boasts a collection of more than 11,000 pieces representing a variety of movements and eras.

Meanwhile Corcovado is also well worth seeing – there’s a funicular train leading up to the iconic Cristo Redentor statue. Football fans should also be sure to make the pilgrimage to the legendary Maracana Football Stadium, currently under renovation ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

A very well equipped kitchen & a real boon to have a washing machine. Great to have air conditioning for the bedrooms & lounge. We felt really at home here & another great advantage was having access to the internet. The reason for our stay was the Paralympics & to support our daughter at the sailing & the location could not have been more ideal being only 5 minutes walk from the team hotel & 20 minutes walk to the ticketed area of the beach. It was also important to be so close to the Catete Metro station as we used the Metro a lot. We felt very safe & secure, especially as there was a concierge on duty & at other times the access was very secure. Easy walking distance to small supermarkets, banks & restaurants. The apartment was very well appointed & catered to all our needs. It was very clean & well maintained & the owner, prior to our arrival was very prompt in answering all our questions, excellent customer service.
