About Escadaria Selarón

It was originally an average cement stairway in the slums, the Chilean artist George Selelon refurbished it with tiles recovered from the rubbish, and later added donations from local tourists and his own creations. Each of the more than 200 steps is a painting. On both sides of the steps, it is also a wall with different heights created by tiles. The backgrounds of these two sides are red, and various patterns are spelled out in different colors. Each tile is a story. Some of the tiles on the steps are divided into two pieces, which are respectively attached to the upper and lower steps. When they are put together, they make a complete picture when viewed from the side.

    If you are a young artist who likes photography, you must come to the Celelon steps. From the side of Raba Arch Bridge Square turnout, you can find the Selleron steps, where colorful, color jump, here can be used as a miniature of Brazilian art, there is a very literary model.

    In fact, this Escadaria Selar &3; n in LAPA was originally just a common cement ladder in a slum until 1990, when Chilean artist Selar &3; n began to decorate it with recycled tiles from garbage dumps, then added donations from tourists and his own works, and finally completed the 250-story works. Although there are many tourists, people will queue up at the entrance of the stairs to take pictures, but in fact, there will be fewer people taking pictures if they go up again. There are many graffiti works around the ladder, which makes the area lively.

    Chilean artists have collected a variety of mosaic tile steps, several of which are also painted with Chinese patterns. The guide said that the neighborhood was not very safe. Don't take out valuables. Rich in color.

    It is said that all the tiles on this step were collected by the author from all over the world, and finally the 250 steps were finished. Bright red, gorgeous yellow and warm dazzling like Brazil's zealous Selelon steps are a tourist attraction and naturally a gathering place for the thieves. During the Olympic Games, Rio's security was strengthened. The steps are from bottom to top, and there is no other way to go. How capable a smart maize stalk is to be a burglar can't escape

    The Celelon Steps is a very famous landmark building in Rio de Janeiro. It's quite suitable to go with friends. There are quite a lot of visitors to take pictures every day. It's really worth visiting. It's very dazzling. It's as impressive as Brazil, a passionate Latin American country.

    I like it very much. Although many people say it's very unsafe, so many tourists, I think it's not too dangerous. However, although more tourists feel more secure, it is really not easy to get good-looking pictures. It is suggested to take some pictures earlier or later (but never darkness). It is better to wear plain colors in clothes, so that the pictures are better and the murals coming are also beautiful. Every one can take a group photo as a souvenir. We also encounter 10 Brazilian coins to write the name on the wall graffiti, you can also feel, anyway, should be regularly erased Haha.
