Porto Marvilha

2009

Rio begins its Porto Marvilha, or “Marvelous Port”, waterfront renovation project. The project includes hotels, residences, office complexes, leisure space, and light-rail. One commentator says:

The sound of modern Rio isn’t the samba or even the bossa nova. It’s the cacophony of construction on a massive scale.
