Rio de janeiro, Brazil - BARRA DA TIJUCA

These are my pics from Barra da Tijuca, a developing neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro























































Statue of Liberty in Rio de Janeiro !!!!
















This is the neighbourhood of São Conrado, on the way to Barra :




This 2-decked Highway goes along the shore, leading to Barra:




Last, but not least, I´ll add here a new pic sent by the brazilian forumer AcesHigh, which shows one of the most beautiful and futuristic constructions in Rio,
not tall ones, but very beautiful; they are office buildings, located behind Cittá América Mall :






Hope you have liked Barra da Tijuca and come to Rio to see it with your own eyes!

Next time I´ll guide you thru Barra, and you won´t get lost !!!!
Barra is really too big for one who doesn´t know it !!

I, myself, wouldn´t like to live in Barra, too ! It´s like living in Miami, not in Rio !!! In part, I agree with you !!

yeah, Christianmx, most of these buildings are residentials, but in Barra there´s also many, many Malls, Shopping Centers, and Office buildings, too ...e.g., the last red ones are just office-buildings...the one with the Statue of Liberty is a Mall, etc...

Nice to see that things are changing in Rio.
A cidade esta a ficar muito mais linda cada fez. A coisa perfeita podia ser se as fazendas seria destruindo e naquela parte seria construada um projecto como deste. Que sonho!
