Portuguese at Catacumba’s City Park
A really fun and informative trip. It is a good place to appreciate good views away from all the crowds in your usual hot spots like Christ the Reedemer and Pao de Azucar. A climb to the top was unexpected but not too strenous and well worth it!

Yesterday our group took part in one more RioLIVE! Activity to know one more place in Rio de Janeiro and also to practice some Portuguese. We visited the Catacumba’s City Park that is located at the heart of the ‘Cidade Maravilhosa’.
While the students were practicing their Portuguese, we enjoyed the contrast between the city hustle and bustle mixed with the silence of a small forest in the middle of all that.
It’s really amazing the contrast that you can have in Rio! The students had the opportunity to learn a little bit more about the history of the park, that was really important in Rio de Janeiro (it was from the park that the favela Cidade de Deus came up) and they also had the opportunity to learn more vocabulary and have a lot of fun.
