About the tour

Project Morrinho is a social and cultural project based out of the Favelas Cariocas and the Favela (Pereirão) in the Laranjeiras neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro. Morrinho, which was started by local youth in 1997, is a 450m² model of the city constructed from bricks and other recycled materials. It began as a simple childhood game to escape from the realities of violence and corruption that surrounded the teens and their community. Don't miss this opportunity to visit in a real time one favela and know this amazing work, it's just incredible!

Tatiane's tours are like magic, because she is so artistic and vibrant and eager to share her knowledge of art, street art and the artists themselves. She is as impressed by the creativity as we, the tourists, are by her stories and shared information. It’s a true pleasure to journey with Tatiane in Brazil. Come along. Don't miss out or you'll regret it.

Very interesting project with very good ideas and symbolisms behind it. Great tour for amazing and colourful postcards. Would have loved to see the little "houses" in more detail next time. Obrigada, Tati!

In the heights of the favela where the beauty of the mountains rise and the spirits of young and inspiring brasilians are bright. Where every piece is a part of the whole.

Very inspiring, I liked the way they used all recycled objects for the art project and involve the community.
