Downtown is the business heart of Rio - the part of the city where colonial Rio meets modern skyscrapers. Passing through Rio Branco avenue, you will see the Candelaria church. Construction began in the late 18th century and was completed by the time Brazil declared its independence. The headquarters for the major Brazilian banks and commercial enterprises are also located on this avenue.
See the Opera House (Teatro Municipal) and the Cariocan Square. Admire the Church of Santo Antonio, built in the 17th century, as well as the contrast of the modern buildings such as Petrobras and the Cathedral. Next you are on to Rio's aqueduct. Constructed in 18th century, it is now used to connect downtown to Santa Teresa district, an old residential area.
