About this location
The State of Rio de Janeiro region
Leme neighborhood, in Copacabana, is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Rio, a very quiet quarter at the very end of Avenida Atlantica.
Just behind Leme, on the hillside with the same name (Morro do Leme), we find the twin favelas of Chapéu Mangueira and Babilonia.
That is where we are!
The twin communities are widely recognized as some of the most beautiful and peaceful in Rio. They are quite small, with only about 7000 people in total, and surrounded by an environmentally protected area at the top of the hill.
These communities where some of the first in Rio to be "pacyfied" (receive a UPP Station -Pacifying Police Units), in 2009, and has been safe from any violent incidents since.
Built on a lush green hillside just 200 yards from the beach, offering amazing views and a quiet environment, they have been an attraction for tourists and foreign press for many years.
The recent hype around Rio`s favelas has brought new life to Babilonia and Chapéu Mangueira, with many foreign tourists and expats discovering it`s charms, in new hostels and business opening by the week.
Within the community, you can find some very nice options for inexpensive restaurants and even pizza delivery.
Restaurants, banks, pharmacies, supermarkets, and other services are abundant in Leme neighborhood, just down the stairs.
