Located in Humaitá, a neighbourhood in Lagoa, the church of Santa Margarida Maria is a beautiful example of colonial Baroque architecture. The blue and white church overlooks the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (lagoon) and the tunnel of Rebouças which links Lagoa with the northern part of Rio de Janeiro. The church is the first thing one sees after driving through the tunnel from Rio to Lagoa.

Address: Rua Frei Solano, 23, Humaitá, Lagoa
