Knowing Historical Center of Rio.

La visita al centro historico fue muy interesante,ya que se puede ver parte de la arquitectura del 1800 y fines de1700 incluida la iglesia de la candelaria , las calles empedradas las casas con fachadas de 1800 y 1900 muy pintorescas ,cafes y lugares para comer picadas.entre alguno de los edificios que visitamos el centro cultural y terminamos tomando un cafe en la  confiteria colombo que es de fines de 1700 pero varias veces remodelada donde provamos los dulces y postres mas ricos que jamas comi.lo recomiendo.

Afternoon at Centro.

Come to Rio and not see the downtown area and historic center is something that cannot happen to our students at Rio & Learn. It’s simply impossible! We  met at the school and took the subway to Uruguaiana station, which by the way is an amazing place to practice Portuguese with cariocas. The students saw a bit of the carioca day-to-day routine, in the heart of Presidente Vargas Avenue, the busiest commercial center in Rio.
The downtown area has a huge variety of options to have an amazing afternoon in the Cidade Maravilhosa. We started our RioLIVE! Activity at Igreja da Candelária. We practiced a lot of Portuguese when we spoke about the history of the place that, till this day, is extremely important to the cariocas, because it is usually there where the manifestations take place. After that we went to Centro Cultural Banco doBrasil and saw a very cool exposition. It was great.
After leaving the exposition, we walked through the old streets of Centro. We reached Paço Imperial, considered one of the most historic and important buildings in Brazil. It was there that the Lei Áurea was signed, which put an end to slavery, and also where Dia do Fico took place. The students asked a lot of questions about the history of Brazil and shared the history of their own countries. It was a very cultural afternoon where we practiced a lot of Portuguese.
