This tour is an observation experience of the architectural evolution of Rio de Janeiro for over 100 years.
Much of Brazil's history goes through Rio de Janeiro, which was the capital for almost 200 years. Observing Rio's architecture is an excellent way to understand the country.
Our first stop is the viewpoint on the rooftop of the "Museu de Arte do Rio" where we will talk about the history of Brazil, so we can understant how important was the city of Rio de Janeiro for the construction of the country and why Rio has such architectural variety. Then we will start our walking by the Mauá Square. This Square is one of the regions with the greatest architectural variety in the city. There, it is possible to see five architectural styles from different decades of 20th and 21th centuries.
After this, we will walk towards Cinelândia, a walk of approximately 2km, visiting buildings, discovering old 18th century churches hidden behind huge modern buildings and french style bakerys! Cinelândia is another square full of historical examples of Brazilian architecture. It holds 5 of the 10 original buildings that remain from the opening of Rio Branco's Avenue in 1905. We'll explore their facades, their details and our last stop will be the Federal Justice Cultural Center. This building preserves an original court room from the beggining of the 20th century.
