Beautiful view at Forte do Leme.

El fuerte de leme es la mejor opción para hacer ejercicio, conocer tus compañeros de clase, y apreciar de una vista increible. No asi tan conocido turisticamente, sin lugar a duda, no puede ser omitido en el “check list”. Quiza te lleves una sorpresa grata con los “Micos”, un tipo de monitos muy divertidos, que te acompañan en todo el recorrido hasta arriba de el fuerte. No te olvides de unas zapatillas deportivas y ropa comoda que es un esfuercito llegar arriba! No te lo pierdas!!!

Forte da Vigia, also known as Forte do Leme is a very beautiful place in Rio de Janeiro, located  at the end of Praia do Leme. Forte da Vigia is not a very well known place by the tourists, but it’s amazing. We started our RioLIVE! with a very nice trekking inside the nature and among the trees, some little monkeys came to say ‘hello’ and our Portuguese students had a lot of fun feeding them. The most interesting thing is, during the whole day the clouds were at the sky of Copacabana, but at the time of the RioLIVE! they simply vanished letting sun appear and making the views even more beautiful.
When we arrived at the top, our students were really amazed with the landscapes there, from the top is possible to see Cristo, Pão de Açúcar, Niterói, Pedra da Gávea, Morro Dois Irmãos, Leme and Copacabana beaches and Favela Babilônia. The students showed some interest about Brazilian history and made a lot of questions, in Portuguese of course. Once again the little monkeys showed and our students Ofir and Denise had a lot of fun feeding them. It was a very funny RioLIVE! and our Portuguese students loved Forte da Vigia.
Come and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
