About the tour

The Day for the Abolition of Slavery is celebrated on May 13 in Brazil. This date pays homage to the Golden Law, sanctioned on May 13, 1888, which ended slavery in Brazil...But there is a lot of history behind it, that history books sometimes don’t count! Let's discover some of them through amazing graffiti inspired by the work of Jean baptiste Debret in the port area of Rio de Janeiro.

Fantastic tour. Street Art with an Artist, Tatiane, who explains the context and interpretation of the works. Breathtaking cultural works, that capture the souls of the artists of Rio de Janeiro. Tatiane is very enthusiastic, so be quick with the snap shots, because the pace of the tour reflects her energy. Log in its worth it!
