Neighborhood: Urca

Together with the Sugarloaf and Morro da BabilĂ´nia, Morro da Urca forms one of the best climbing and hiking areas in the country. The top is known for marvelous views, while the base is a good place to do some hiking. Most of the experienced, skilled mountain climbers will be found scaling the sheer side of the hill, but there are also nice hiking trails that start from the Praia Vermelha, which should keep you busy for more than an hour.
