Rio de Janeiro - Flamengo & Around (Chapter)
This is the Flamengo & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Rio de Janiero guidebook.
Running east from the bay out to Corcovado, the residential neighborhoods of Flamengo, Laranjeiras, Catete, Glória and Cosme Velho have much history hidden in their old streets. The beach-fronting Parque do Flamengo – one of the world’s largest urban parks – dominates the region.
- take the steep cog train up Corcovado for a panoramic view beneath Rio’s open-armed Cristo Redentor.
- explore Rio’s past days of demagogues and political intrigue in the Museu da República.
- admire the colorful works of talented but little-known artists at the Museu Internacional de Arte Naïf do Brasil.
- restaurants & bars
