Basking on the shores of Guanabara Bay, the buzzing city centre is home to historic landmarks, the financial district and the modern Metropolitan Cathedral. Overlooking the old colonial capital, 19th century mansions conceal bohemian artists' hangouts in the hilly streets of Santa Teresa, whilst Christ the Redeemer keeps watch from atop the Corcovado Mountain, as the city throbs with samba beats beneath him. To the south, bay meets ocean at the Sugarloaf Mountain and Rio's famous beaches stretch out west along the Atlantic coast one after another, from Copacabana and Ipanema to Leblon and Barra de Tijuca.
