This tour is special because Little Africa is situated in a region where the African presence has left a living heritage, which perpetuates and is renewed to this day. It expresses, therefore, struggle and resistance. Brazil was the destination of at least 40% of all Africans who arrived as captives in the Americas between the sixteenth and nineteenth centuries. Out of these, about 60% entered through Rio de Janeiro's port, almost a quarter of all Africans enslaved in the Americas. The city of Rio de Janeiro can be considered the largest port of slavery in the history of mankind. The history and impacts of slavery trade lined up Brazil’s colonial heritage and contribute to dynamics and exclusions socioeconomic conditions that permeate the whole Brazil society till nowadays.

In this tour you will get to know some of the places of the city of Rio de Janeiro called "Little Africa" by artist and sambista Heitor dos Prazeres in the early twentieth century.

It is through this walk through "Little Africa" you will also get to know the Cultural Center "Tia Ciata", Museum of New Blacks, Cais do Valongo, hanging garden and we will finish in Pedra do Sal where besides the historical collection also has great bars and restaurants of typical Afro-Brazilian foods.

Soccer game in Rio de Janeiro with Local Supporter

I'm in love with football. I went to the stadium for the first time at the age of 5 and never stopped being present. I celebrated championships, cried for losses and victories, watched some of the greatest players in Brazil and in the world. I made great friends who cheer for my team and also for the opposing team, after all, sport is Peace. At Maracanã I watched strangers embrace as relatives celebrating a goal at the last minute and witnessed parents celebrating the first championship along with their young son. I invite you to see all this with me, with security and structure. "Let's go!"
