Our Favela Tour in Rio will take you through the narrow streets of the ghetto , as well as a family home where an amazing view of the city can be seen. While there in the slum, guides will talk about historical and social aspects of the place.
The favela da Rocinha used to be largest slum in South America until 1992, when it became a district of Rio de Janeiro. It has conquered its own administrative zone, with an office and an administrator. Nowadays, this district has a population of approximately 120,000 inhabitants. Although it preserves the unorganised look of a ghetto, it has everything any other district of Rio has. During the tour, tourists will find out that the place has its own clinics, supermarkets, public schools, banks and even a tv station.
