Esta vez la actividad de la escuela de portuguรฉs fue la visita al Fuerte de Copacabana y Arpoador. Elย Fuerte de Copacabanaย fueย construido en 1908 para reforzar la defensa de laย Baรญa de Guanabara yย separa a las famosas playas de Ipanema y Copacabana. Los alumnos visitamos elย Museo Histรณrico del Ejรฉrcito y despuรฉs fuimos al inicio de la playa de Ipanema, donde se encuentra el punto Arpoador. Desde ahรญ, disfrutamos de laย vista panorรกmica al “Morro de los dos Hermanos”, uno de los puntos mรกs bellos de la costa que encantรณ e impresionรณ a los visitantes.

At this time the activity consisted in going walking through Copacabana and Arpoador, our students from France, Sweden, England, Spain and Switzerland started the activity in a very pleasant ย way walking through Copacabana’s shore and making our first stop at ย Forte de Copacabana (Fort Copacabana), a very ย historical place built originally to protect Rio de Janeiro’s coast from the invasions. Nowadays there is a very nice museum where people can go and meet a little about its history and also many cafes where people can stay in and relax.

After the visitation we followed our way towards to Arpoador, a place that is between Copacabana and Ipanema and very popular among people who live in Rio. Students could take a nice walk and also enjoyed the beauty of the place, the next and final stop was Pedra do Arpoardorย (Arpoador’s Stone). There, there is a very nice view from the whole beach and also Ipanema’s neighborhood, they could enjoy the view and also wait for the sunset talking a lot and having a lot of fun. In the end, they were one ย more time amazed and satisfied with this one more piece of Rio’s beauty.
