Leme is a upper-middle-class neighborhood located in the southern area of Rio de Janeiro, next to Copacabana, Urca and Botafogo. The neighborhood takes its name from a nearby rock formation, called “Pedra de Leme”, that has a shape resembling the rudder of a ship.
Here you can find a wide choice of Leme apartments, that suit every taste.
If you like fishing you should visit the “Caminho dos Pescadores” (Fisherman’s Pathway, Leme, Rio de Janeiro), a platform constructed over and around Leme Rock where locals fish.
Leme’s Fortress at Rio de Janeiro is officially called “Forte Duque de Caxias”, and can be visited on Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays.
The visit to Leme’s fortress includes a walk around the “Ambiental Preservation Area of the Pedra de Leme”. The exact adrress is: Praça Almirante Júlio de Noronha – Leme, Rio de Janeiro.
