Centro is Rio's business hub and also one of Rio's oldest areas; it houses baroque churches, historic sites, scenic plazas and lavish theaters. Its wide boulevards are crisscrossed with narrow pedestrian streets sprinkled with colonial buildings. History aside, Centro has atmospheric open-air cafes and bars that draw the happy-hour crowd. North of Centro, Praça Mauá is the center of Rio's revitalized port district and has some outstanding new museums.
