Things to do in Glória, Brazil

There are a number of interesting sights to be found in the area. 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.

Also essential are the Sugar Loaf Mountains, the summits of which can be reached via an aerial tramway. A portion of the route is walkable, for braver visitors. 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.
