Wild Afternoon in Santa Teresa

13 de June de 2022

Santa Teresa is a beautiful hilltop district in Rio. We kicked off our visit at the Bar do Mineiro sharing a feijoada feast, some refreshing Brazilian beers, and great company. For those of you new to feijoada, basically, it’s a stew of beans with beef and pork, accompanied by white rice and farofa (fried manioc flour). I’ve probably only had feijoada 6 to 8 times in my life; nonetheless, Mineiro’s definitely holds the current first place on my list. After lunch, we enjoyed a long walk around the neighborhood. The whole area has a very welcoming village-like, artsy vibe…a mix of chic, groovy, charming, and quirky with steep, winding streets, lined with boutique restaurants and bars, street art, music, and studios. I definitely plan on returning, probably for dinner and the nightlife.

Eating Feijoada at Bar do Mineiro in Santa Teresa

Despite of the cold and cloudy weather, we had a wild afternoon in Santa Teresa. That’s because our Portuguese students were really excited to visit this neighborhood with RioLIVE! and they were also speaking, joking a lot (in Portuguese) and at the same time full of energy to explore. We started our activity taking the tram up and enjoying the views of Lapa and downtown, our second stop was at Bar do Mineiro to enjoy a delicious feijoada since it was lunch time. Then, after walking around the streets, we finished this visit at the traditional Escadaria SelarΓ³n with great pictures and conversations.
