BABILONIA FAVELA & HILL -  3 hours

 

We will first go up the steep steps of the Chapéu Mangueira favela and then we will be in the Babilonia one. You will get all the information for you to understand why favelas exist in Brazil, I will speak about their history, their arquitecture and the way of life of its inhabitants. About 5000 people live in those 2 favelas side by side. Step by step, we will discover the magnificent view on all Copacabana beach. Once on the top of the favela we will start the little hike (30 minutes) to reach the summit of the Babilonia hill, from it we will also enjoy the view on the Guanabara Bay and Sugar Loaf.
