Arcos da Lapa - Gateway to Santa Teresa

Arcos da Lapa - oil on canvas 46x55cm -Sandra Nunes

This corner in the old downtown area is very inspiring.These arches (old aqueduct) cut the district of Lapa, with its decaying colonial two-story houses, taking the old trams to Santa Teresa.
What moves and intrigues me at this site is the comtemporary atmosphere that reminds us of a romantic time gone by.
