A Shantytown in Rio to Become Tourist Area

The President of Brazil announced plans to turn Rio's Complexo do Alemao shantytown into a tourism spot as recent police operations significantly reduced crime there.

The government is carrying out a major facelift of the shantytown and improving living conditions with the construction of a cable car line, a state-of-the-art 3D movie theater, a family clinic, a school, and several other renovations. The new cable car line was inaugurated last week. It connects to a neighboring train station and will facilitate travel to and from the remotest corner of the shantytown on a hill.

Rio has several tourist attractions in shantytowns. Some hotels located in slums near the beach offer beautiful views of the city.
