Welcome to Rio de Janeiro, the city with sweeping landscapes and the emblematic soaring statue of Christ the Redeemer! This audio tour guarantees you will stroll the city center with your eyes wide open as you get excited about the buildings and history.
You will get back in time, when Rio was the capital of Brazil, and see the Tiradentes Palace that housed the National Congress.
A few steps away, you will admire the Imperial past and modernity at the quaint Teles Arch alley lined with lovely bars and cafes.
The tour will show you the most glaring churches in Rio. For example, you will take in the ornate look and the Neo-Renaissance interior of the famous Candelária church. Later, gaze at the São Francisco de Paula Church, a colonial masterpiece that took almost 100 years to build and decorate with tiles and woodcarving.
Then, you will tune in with the vibe of the busy Carioca Square in Rio's heart. After that, don't miss browsing the extensive collection of Brazilian art from the 19th and 20th centuries that the National Museum of Fine Arts boasts of. Across the street, you will see the UNESCO-featured National Library, the largest in Latin America.
Finally, the cone-shaped São Sebastião Cathedral will pull you in with its supernatural exterior of a modernist skyscraper rather than a sacred space.
