On nous avait promis une experience de dingue et non une visite, ce fut le cas, un de mes plus beaux souvenirs au Bresil. Un grand merci.

Foreigner Portuguese language students from Rio & Learn Portuguese School in the Favela Santa Marta.

We didn’t just play football, we also visited the famous favela Santa Marta.

We finished with football in the favela, but we started our visit waiting for the Plano Inclinado, we used this elevator as any local to go up in the favela. You can find a lot of street art all along the favela.
