Named for Santa Teresa Convent from the 1750s, this neighborhood, with its winding streets and hilltop views, is a major attraction for tourists and artists alike. Although no longer the affluent area it once was, Santa Teresa is still home to some ornate mansions, one of which is the Chácara do Ceu; once home to art collector Raimundo Otoni Castro Maya, it now serves as the Museu da Chácara do Ceu . Visitors should definitely take the tram ride that starts at the city center and takes them through the streets of Santa Teresa.
