    A perfectly reproduced, small-scale replica of a favela (slum), this innovative arts project has brought media attention, tourism and social change to the Pereira da Silva favela. The project started life back in 1997 as the backyard hobby of two local teenagers, and today has become a 320 square meter (3444.45 square foot) model community that recreates favela life in stunning detail. Made from reclaimed bricks and recycled materials, Projeto Morrinho's government arts grant has enabled the organizers to plow money into social projects in the favela. Call or e-mail in advance to arrange a visit and you will be warmly welcomed, but don't attempt to wander into the favela alone. Transport and directions can be arranged.
