Rio's Centro (Downtown) is a district in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Centro has most of the city's notable churches and museums, including the Modern Art Museum, as well as many of its most famous bars.
Lapa is one of the most thrilling places to be in Rio after dark, with streets and bars full of people, all in historical buildings (most of them from the early 1800s). In Lapa you can hear typical Brazilian music such as samba, forró, and choro. It's the place to try typical Brazilian food and drinks like the world-famous caipirinha. The nearby Santa Teresa neighborhood, located on the hills to the southwest, is a beautiful historical district and home to many of the city's artists.
