11 Girl from Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The song “Girl from Ipanema” put the Ipanema Beach near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on the map. Written in 1962, it was inspired by a seventeen-year-old Brazilian girl named Helô Pinheiro as she walked by a bar called Veloso. You can see a plaque on the table where Vinicius de Moraes is claimed to have written the lyrics. Fifty years later, Ipanema Beach still has beautiful waves, sand and women.
