Laranjeiras

Laranjeiras (28)

Besides being home to the magnificent Palácio Laranjeiras, this charming little neighbourhood is famous for two things: football and music.

Football because Fluminense Football Club was founded in one of its aristocratic residences in 1902. Years later the team's first home stadium was built here, and it is still used as an alternative venue (Fluminense uses the Maracanã Stadium for most of its home matches). This stadium is Manoel Schwartz Stadium, popularly known as Estádio das Laranjeiras, and has capacity for 8000 spectators.

Another reason to stroll through the neighbourhood of Laranjeiras, besides the knowledge that it was one of the most elegant and affluent areas of Rio, is to enjoy good food and, above all, good music. Also, the neighbourhood is just steps away from one of the most important tourist attractions of Rio de Janeiro, Christ the Redeemer, since Laranjeiras borders the small neighbourhood of Cosme Velho, which is home to the station where the little train climbs up to the city's most iconic monument, and is very close to the interesting Museum of Naive Art.

To enjoy live music, head to the famous Mercado São José das Artes, a place that brings together art, good music and good food. What more could you ask for?

You can also enjoy the carioca spirit in Praça San Salvador, the heart of the neighbourhood, where dozens of cariocas get together every night to enjoy the outdoors, have a cold beer on hot nights and listen to music at small free concerts on Sundays.
