          Santa Teresa
          Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
          artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
          neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
          can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
          mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
          century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
          former mansion turned museum which houses works by
          prominent Brazilian modern artists.
