Santa Teresa Tram, Rio de Janeiro [4K 60fps]


This is one of the coolest trams in the world! The tram actually had a much longer route than it did 10 years ago. Today, it begins at Carioca, a 5 minute walk from the Metro station.

The Santa Teresa Tram in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is an extremely unique railway, which winds its way up a hill in an eclectic neighborhood. The tram begins at Carioca Station (Estação Carioca) in the Lapa neighborhood and ends at the top of the hill at Dois Irmãos. The tram used to connect all the way to the Trem do Corcovado, Rack Railway to the Christ the Redeemer Statue (Cristo Redentor).
