Visit Escadaria Selaron to admire an artist’s work

The Escadaria Selarón, comprising 125 meters of steps covered in thousands of pieces of bright tiles, is the labour of love of artist Jorge Selarón. It is located in Rio de Janeiro in between the bohemian neighborhoods of Lapa and Santa Teresa. Selarón was a travelling painter who finally settled in Rio and started to randomly renovate some steps – this turned into his tribute for the city that he loved and became his home.
