Although situated very close to the place where Rio de Janeiro was founded, in 1565, Urca is a young District, built in a reclaimed land area, at the foot of Sugar Loaf Mountain, in the first decades of the XX Century. Once known for its famous Casino, Urca remains as an amazing and exclusive neighbourhood, one of the best in town. The photo was taken from Urca Hill.
This is another pic taken from Blue Tree Towers Hotel, showing part of Rio Vermelho, a neighbourhood famous for its artists, fishermen, restaurants, hotels and lively night.
One of brazilian most beautiful cities, Recife blends rich cultural and historical attractions with fine beaches. Here we can see Boa Viagem, a district famous for its beach... waiting for the rain! I took this pic from a plane, leaving Recife.
Another pic taken from a plane flying from Rio to São Paulo: the Sugar Loaf Mountain, at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, in an unusual perspective.
Here is another view of Corcovado Mountain (710 meters high) and Christ The Redeemer monument, taken from a bus stop. This "Number One" landmark can be seen from (almost) everywhere in town, like this street (Rua Humaitá), a very busy one.
