Brazil Discoveries: Inside the Rocinha Favela

Travel into Rio De Janeiro’s Rocinha favela – the biggest in Brazil – with World Nomads’ Chris Noble as he discovers a side of the city away from the party.


In recent years, the favelas have been a source of controversy, with massive police crackdowns on drug kingpins, which have escalated in a full-blown drug war. Chris discovers there is more to these areas than what we see in the news, and meets some of the residents and hears their side of the story. Join Chris in the heart of the Rocinha favela, where he discovers a place filled with community spirit, and passionate, hospitable people.
