  Arco de Teles
by MM212

Dating from 1757, this stone arch is all that remains from the old senate house which burnt down in 1790. The arch was incorporated into the construction of a later building and leads to the Travessa do Comércio, the much celebrated alley with preserved colonial architecture and many restaurants. Arco de Teles is located on Praça 15 de Novembre, the heart of downtown Rio.

Address: Praça 15 de Novembre - CENTRO
