There was a time when Praca XV was at the heart of a powerful and progressive empire, the center of pomp and pageantry. Now it's so deteriorated that it will be hard to resuscitate. A revitalization is possible, but seems implausible. A pair of important...More

Downtown Rio is the place where this city was born.
With modern skyscrapers sharing space with historical
buildings and landmarks, this neighbourhood is living
proof that the old and the new can live together
harmoniously. As you would expect, downtown is where
