South Zone Trails

Notícias recentes sobre o que acontece de mais importante voltar

A new tourist attraction started this last weekend in the city – walks along trails in the hills of the South Zone, from which there are stunning views of Rio. The project is called “Trails Babilonia Hill RioSul” and takes place in three different locations: the hills of Leme, São João and Babilônia.

Besides showing the natural beauty of the region, the walks also have a social objective, as the trail guides are members of the Moleque Mateiro Institute for environmental education, and representatives of the Residents’ Association of the Morro da Babilônia.
The trails provide an education in various species of Brazilian plants, with signs provided by Shopping RioSul. One of the highlights is the Mirante do Telégrafo, a lookout point with a wonderful view of the city.
