The district of Santa Teresa is named after a 17th-century monastery on top of the hill. The traditional little tram, a tourist landmark in Rio, was inaugurated in 1896. The district became more popular after 1744 when the Aqueduct and new roads were built. Attracted by its pleasant climate, European immigrants were the first ones to settle in this area, building impressive art nouveau mansions around the hill. The district has preserved its history and charm, becoming an alternative for leisure, life quality and luxury adopting the Carioca style. Its topography and its out-of-the-way leisure places take visitors to a refuge back in time.
