Fodor's Review

This group, which started out as a Carnival bloco and is renowned as the oldest Afro bloco in Brazil, has turned itself into a dynamic cultural hub. It now has its own school and promotes the study and practice of African heritage, religion, and history. To take part, call ahead to schedule a visit to the school. Contributions are appreciated. Its Carnival camaroteis considered one of the best.
