Practically the same borough, Flamengo and Catete (a prime area) are quiet neighbourhoods with next to no nightlife and an unappealing beach. The place is, however, a backpacker’s haven with its inexpensive lodges. In the vast Flamengo Park, the futuristic-looking Museu Carmen Miranda holds a jumble of the singer’s musical memorabilia—posters, records, photographs, and her trademark colourful costume hats. Catete has its own attraction, the Palácio do Catete, once the Presidential palace and now a historical museum, with an art gallery and theatre next door.
