Catete and Gloria

Though a little run-down, historic, residential Catete and Glória are well worth an afternoon's sightseeing. The Palácio do Catete, the presidential palace until the government moved to Brasília, itself warrants at least two hours. In addition to its hilltop church, Glória has a lovely marina that's perfect for a picnic or stroll, especially on a Sunday, when the main road is closed to traffic.
