Parque das catacumbas is an old site of a favela which was ripped down many years ago, it is now a park which can be visited. There is a trail to walk up which can be a little steep at times, along the way there is historic information about the favela and todays goings on. The view from the top is excellent of the lake and surrounding features.
After the trail we went down to the lake and hired bicycles to ride around the lake, it was jolly good fun and very flat terrain. We laughed a lot and stopped for photos along the way. Another fun day out with RioLIVE!.
Yesterday we had a great ride around Lagoon. We start our RioLIVE! In the catacombs park, we did a little hike and at the top we had a really amazing view of the wonderful city.
Then we took our bikes and took a full turn around the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon. The day was very beautiful and our pictures were wonderful.
