Sweets and Portuguese

Our students enjoying RioLIVE! at Confeitaria Colombo.

The visit at Confeitaria Colombo was a very nice experience for me, going there I could know a little bit more about the Rio de Janeiro’s Historical Center and also see the mix between modern and old architecture. Plus, I could visit this beautiful place called Confeitaria Colombo and have some delicious sweets. Besides eating delicious desserts and having fun, me and friends from the Portuguese school could practice even more our Portuguese and learn more new words. It was such a great experience!

Sweets and Portuguese! That was our RioLIVE! at this time, the students of Rio & Learn Portuguese School had the opportunity to visit Confeitaria Colombo (Colombo Bakery), a very famous and beautiful bakery originally founded by two Portuguese immigrants in Rio de Janeiro. Located at the center of the city, this place is famous because of its popular past customers, people such as: the president Getúlio Vargas, the famous musician Villa-Lobos etc.

Inspired in an European architecture, the bakery has a very comfortable and cozy environment, along with its beautiful mirrors that are all around the place and also rich detailed tables and chairs inside it. Our students from Slovakia, Ukraine and New Zealand were very amazed with such great place and were staring admiring everything while having some sweets, drinking some coffee, juices and talking and Portuguese.

In the end, they were really satisfied with this visit and they also were very happy with one more great place that only Rio de Janeiro can offer, what about you?
