Where is it?
Ideally located as a touring base, my neighborhood offers easy access to the entire city by Subway (a few stops from the beaches) or $ 10 taxi from the waterfront. Near the downtown is a few stops from the Theatro Municipal, Candelária Church, Confeitaria Colombo and all the rich history that emanates from the city. To the delight of children, teenagers and even the most experienced adventurers, the largest urban forest reserve in the world - the Tijuca National Park - is located in my neighborhood. The place also has plenty of buses and is close to a train station.
For lovers of Brazilian music, some curiosity: Tijuca is the birthplace of Jorge Ben, Tim Maia and maestro Tom Jobin, who was born in the neighborhood and moved with his family to Ipanema to escape the high rents at the time.
The Tijuca has 2 botequins (a kind of typical pub) that have just honored and awarded as cultural heritages of the city: the Dona Maria's Bar (where samba composers like Moacir Luz, Joao Bosco and Aldir Blanc are always present) and Salete (which has the best empadas - kind of small salt cake - of the universe).
And if the neighborhood is full of tradition, yet is home of great Samba Schools like Salgueiro, Unidos da Tijuca (the last two champions of the carnival) and the famous Mangueira (Chico Buarque has one of the biggest fans).
