Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Rio de Janeiro / Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas
From its vantage point atop a hill, you have captivating 360-degree views of Rio de Janeiro framed by the empty windows of the old house. Once the opulent residence of Laurinda Santos Lobo, the “Marchioness of Elegance”, Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas played host to the most fashionable social gatherings of the time, and, after major restoration work by award-winning architect Ernani Freire, is now a cultural center with an auditorium, gallery, outdoor stage, and its own calendar of interesting events. You can explore the three floors of the former mansion, now a fusion of original brickwork and modern iron structure, or enjoy a coffee in the lovely garden. Having lost none of its splendor, despite the years of abandonment and looting, Centro Cultural Municipal Parque das Ruinas is considered one of the most stunning locations in the city.

Great cultural space at Santa Teresa neighborhood, close to Rio de Janeiro's city centre. Great view points: sugar loaf mountain and from the very top of the "ruin" you can also see Christ the Redeemer, Metropolitan Cathedral and much more. Many cultural events takes place here and some expositions as well. If you're in Rio, I'm a local guide here. Feel free to get in touch with me through any social media: @DEBOMZAI
Beautiful park on the hill above the Santa Teresa steps. The old mansion ruins plus the modernist steel girders give it a very cool atmosphere and the views of Rio are unbelievable. We looked at some of the art but didn't really take advantage of that aspect of the park.
