Neighborhood: Centro

The upper floors of an expansive Colonial building have been turned into a vast exhibition space for Rio's local art collective. Called A Gentil Carioca, the building itself is worth a visit. There are new exhibitions every month or so, many of which invite visitor interaction. While the installations are generally thought-provoking, most interesting of all is to take a peek out of the windows and view Downtown Rio's street scene from above. From the street vendors and working girls to the crumbling mansion houses, it is a fascinating vista. Entrance to the gallery is free.
