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.
