Secret Rio

by Manoel de Almeida e Silva | 12 July 2016
Visit an extraordinary hill where the "little angels" are buried; discover remarkable forgotten Art Deco buildings; see a plane taking off at really close range, leftovers from the 1908 and 1922 Universal Expositions, a beautiful private palace open to visitors once a month, modernist ceramics hidden on the 15th-floor terrace of a former government building, a remarkable secret staircase; experience little-known walks and views of the city; find an Amazonian talisman at Copacabana, vestiges of the Carioca river, a rare statue of the great-grandmother of Jesus, a taxi nightclub, a work of art in a favela, a disused airship hangar ... Far from the crowds and the usual beach and carnival clichés, Rio de Janeiro has countless treasures it reveals only to residents and travellers who wander off the beaten track. An indispensable guide for all those who thought they were familiar with Rio or would like to discover the other face of the city.
