Christ Church > How to Find Us  

Christ Church is in the zona sul (southern zone of Rio de Janeiro)

Our address is at the 'Contact us' page  

The Church is well served by public transport, our nearest Metro (underground) station is Botafogo. If coming by train, walk down Voluntarios da Patria (not in the direction of the sea but the other way). When you reach Rua Real Grandeza turn right, and the Church is easily seen 50 metres along on your right hand side.

By bus coming from Copacabana/Ipanema catch the 136/154/435 and alight on Rua São Joao Batista, then walk left onto Rua Voluntarios da Patria and right, as above, onto Rua Real Grandeza. The 512 also comes through Copacabana (Rua Barata Ribeiro) but comes down the Voluntários, so you get off at the Extra Supermarket. If coming from Gavea or Leblon the 157/438/512 can be taken and will drop you outside the Extra supermarket, Real Grandeza is then behind you - turn right as above.  Always ask the driver if he's going to Botafogo.

By car - on a Sunday is easy - especially if you are coming from São Conrado, Barra and Recreio. Head towards the city driving alongside the Lake, and then look for signs for Humaita and Botafogo. Keep heading straight and the road will soon become Rua Voluntarios da Patria. You can't turn left up Real Grandeza as it's one way - so turn left up Rua da Matriz, which is the next road after the petrol station on your left. (Don't turn down the little road that's by the petrol station - it's a dead end). Up Rua da Matriz, left onto Rua Saõ Clemente and left again into Rua Real Grandeza, the Church is now about 75 metres on your left hand side.

By Taxi - simply show the driver a copy of the Church address, and insist he puts the meter on as soon as you set off.
If in any doubt whatsoever, please ring or E-mail us before you set out.
