Gavea is an affluent neighbourhood situated in the Southern Zone of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In the early 20th century, Gavea was primarily known for hosting car races, but after the construction of roads further connected the area to Rio de Janeiro, real estate development began in earnest and wealthy Rio citizens started building homes there. Even though Gavea is largely residential, it is still popular with tourists and locals due to the exciting nightlife, chic restaurants, and many cultural attractions and theatres. Gavea is also popular among young artists and has many European-style cafes with a Bohemian flare.
- Marvel at the stars at the Gavea Planetarium, a collection of interactive science displays that have long delighted and educated Rio de Janeiro citizens of all ages.
- Catch a concert of local Rio de Janeiro musicians at the “living art centre” known as Gavea House, the centre for arts and culture in the area that offers courses in everything from theatre to TV writing.
- Explore the winding, tree lined paths of City Park, a conservation area located in Gavea that features a meandering stream and a plethora of local wildlife.
Gavea is centrally located in Rio de Janeiro and lies close to Leblon, Lagoa, Jardim Botânico, making it easy to reach using public transportation or private car. Buses are probably the most popular form of local transport and there are a number of routes that leave from the Rio de Janeiro city centre and pass through Gavea, stopping at busy areas and shopping centres. Many people come to the area for the Pedra da Gavea trail that leads to an 852 metre summit that offers great views of the city.
