About the tour

Also known as the 'Selaron Steps', is a set of world-famous steps in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is artwork, which is covered in over 2000 tiles collected from over 60 countries around the world. They are the work of Chilean-born artist Jorge Selarón that changed an entire area bringing colours to a stair that connects the Lapa neighbourhood to Santa Teresa. Let's have a look at this unique stairway. Note: The tour could be rescheduled due to weather conditions.

The colorful and unique Selaron Stairs of Rio de Janeiro is a totally different tour. Danna did a great job and made an effort to come up to the top and show them to us. Worth seeing.
