Itinerary

Selarón Staircase, also known as the Selaron Steps, is a set of world- famous steps in Rio de Janeiro.

The work of Chilean-born artist Jorge Selaron who claimed it as my tribute to the Brazilian people In 1990, Selarón began renovating dilapidated steps that ran along thefront of his house. At first, neighbours mocked him for his choice of colours as he covered the steps in fragments of blue, green and yellow tiles – the colours of the Brazilian flag.

It soon became an obsession. He found he was constantly out of money, so Selarón sold paintings to fund his work. It was long and exhausting work but he continued on and eventually covered the entire set of steps in tiles, ceramics and mirrors.

At Selaron Steps, there are 215 steps measuring 125 metres long, which are covered in over 2000 tiles collected from over 60 countries around theworld.
