This is view from across the street of impressive Candelária Church. The parish was founded in 1634. One of the prettiest features of this Neoclassical masterpiece is the beautiful limestone dome, imported from Portugal. Do not miss details in marble and cast iron, beautiful stained windows, and 6 large panels portraying the origins of the church. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com. All rights reserved.

It is surrounded by the Museum of Fine Arts, the Municipal Library, and the Municipal Theater. Take a seat, and spend a few minutes people-watching before you go on.

There are so many beautiful statues and monuments in Rio, that we wonder if anyone keeps track of them all! This is a city in constant renovation, and even fountains and monuments are sometimes transported to new locations. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com.  All rights reserved.

The Rubik's-cube-with-some-pieces-missing tower of Petrobrás is one of the most impressive. Photo by Silviano for www.ipanema.com.  All rights reserved.  Todos os direitos reservados.
