See for yourself the area where 30% of Rio's inhabitants live. You will be surprised about the culture, the lifestyle, the simplicity of the residents. On this tour of Favela Cantagalo, you will get to know the history and habits of the community residents, the present changes happening and the macro-political context. You will understand the social paradox that exists in the city and gain an understanding of Carioca society. A few years ago, community leaders in the culturally active community Cantagalo created the first territorial favela museum in the world—a living, a dynamic and interactive museum about the very special lifestyle in a favela. The metro elevator in Ipanema will take us right into the heart of the favelas, or communities, of Cantagalo, Pavão and Pavãozinho.
