Favela Walking Tour

Description

The favela tour starts at 13:30 till 17h
A favela is the generally used term for a shanty town in Brazil. In the late 18th century, the first settlements were called "bairros africanos" (African neighborhoods), and they were the place where former slaves with no land ownership and no options for work lived. Over the years, many freed black slaves moved in. However, before the first settlement called "favela" came into being, poor black citizens were pushed away from downtown into the far suburbs. Most modern favelas appeared in the 1970s, due to rural exodus, when many people left rural areas of Brazil and moved to cities. Without finding a place to live, many people ended up in a favela.

Our tour is made 100% walking - we get there by car and walk the whole thing :)
