São Conrado

São Conrado is an affluent neighborhood in the South Zone (Zona Sul) of the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro. It is nestled in between the wealthy neighborhoods of Barra da Tijuca to the east and Gávea to the west. São Conrado is famous for it's hang gliding (popular with locals and tourists alike), Fashion Mall which houses over 150 stores carrying national and international designers, and golf course. The neighborhood, or "bairro", is made up of sophisticated residential buildings, night clubs, and elegant restaurants. Contrasting with the wealth, however, is the sight of the Favela da Rocinha, Brazil's largest shantytown, which clings to the unmistakable Morro Dois Irmãos.

Despite being situated near this favela, São Conrado enjoys a high level of safety and continues to be a desirable location for the well-heeled of Rio.
