Where you'll be

Our first stop will be at the Republican Museum in the historic Catete neighborhood. After that, we'll ride the subway downtown and I'll take you to the Candelária Church. From there, we'll walk through the areas where the slaves were negotiated and where Rio's Witch used to capture her victims. We'll see several places along the way, including the Municipal Theater in the Cinelândia area, where strange things have happened and no one knows why.
