Walk down the famous ceramic Selaron stairway steps to reach Lapa, created by the Chilean Jorge Selarón and learn more about the pieces of ceramic that were placed on top of the paintings done by the locals who were decorating the stairs in support for the National Soccer Team in 1994’s World Cup, won by Brazil.
