Leme (Rio de Janeiro)

Leme (which in Portuguese means helm) is a neighborhood in the Zona Sul of the City of Rio de Janeiro, next to Copacabana, Urca and Botafogo. The neighborhood takes its name from a near by rock formation whose shape is similar to the helm of a ship.

The hotel Le Méridien closed in 2007 and is undergoing renovations by a new operator. Every year in the days leading up to New Year's on December 31st the traditional processions honoring Yemaja begin here. The famous party of Réveillon or New Year's Eve in Copacabana extends completely into Leme as well.
