"Flamengo" Flamengo Tip by acemj

Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro: 6 reviews and 9 photos

Near downtown, you'll find some other interesting neighborhoods such as Gloria, Catete and Flamengo. I didn't have enough time to really get to know these areas or to figure out exactly where the dividing lines are between them, but you can easily reach these neighborhoods by the Metro from Copacabana or Ipanema. Some of the main sights include the Church of Our Lady of Gloria and the Museum of the Republic. Also be sure to visit the large park next to the bay, known as Flamengo Reclaim. Here you'll find a Museum of Modern Art and the Carmen Miranda Museum.
