Rio de Janeiro - RJ


Rio de Janeiro, or simply Rio, the "cidade maravilhosa" (marvellous city) as locals affectionately call it, is one of the most visited cities in the southern hemisphere and is known for its natural settings, Carnival celebrations, Samba, Bossa Nova and beaches, such as the world-wide famous Copacabana and Ipanema. Corcovado Mountain with the statue of Christ, the Redeemer located in the only urban forest in the world and the Sugar Loaf Mountain at the entrance of Guanabara Bay are other landmarks of this comopolitan city.

Barra - BA

Salvador - BA

Salvador is known as Brazil's capital of happiness due to its countless popular outdoor parties, including its street carnival. The first colonial capital of Brazil, the city is one of the oldest in the Americas. Salvador is notable for its cuisine, music and architecture, and its metropolitan area is the wealthiest in Brazil's Northeast. The African influence in many cultural aspects of the city makes it the centre of African-Brazilian culture. This reflects a situation in which African-associated cultural practices are celebrated.
