We very much enjoyed the favela walking tour. Our guide, Edmundo, provided an entertaining and informative narrative while we walked down through the streets and alleyways. It was perfectly safe. Edmundo's passionate for street art shines through.

can be found on the charming Garcia d'Ávila Avenue.
The neighbourhood is very rich culturally, housing
many art galleries that show contemporary art. There
