Rio & Learn organise réguliément des sorties les aprés-midi aprés les cours. Hier, nous avons visité le palais Catete qui était la résidence officielle du Président du Brésil avant le transfert de la capitale de Rio de Janeiro á Brasilia. Ce palais est aujourd’hui transformé en musée et est facilement accessible par le métro qui porte le même nom. L’endroit est calme pour se promener. Le parc est agréable avec ses beaux arbres exotiques. Le musée fournit de nombreuses imforçqtions sur le dernier President Getúlio Vargas qui a connu une fin tragique en ce lieu même ! Ce fût une belle visite!

Before Brasília, the capital of Brazil was Rio de Janeiro. Catete’s Palace was the official government’s building. So, in our RioLIVE! at this time, we gathered history with the natural beauties of Catete’s Park.

We started our RioLIVE! walking around the park and enjoying the moment speaking Portuguese a lot. The place is surrounded by buildings, what gives a mixture of big city and nature.

After that, we visited the Palace and our Portuguese students could get more information about the country’s history. Mainly about Getúlio Vargas, for many people, one of the best presidents in Brazil. This is also the place where he did his suicide.

It was a lively afternoon in Rio de Janeiro, come you too and take part in our RioLIVE! Activities.
