  Boa Viagem Island by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

Boa Viagem Island, it gave the name to the neighborhood, and this is a place in Niteroi where most of the middle class society live, it is quite peaceful and it gives incredible views of Niteroi and Rio de Janeiro city!

The Island is part of the National History, on the top of the hill there is a barroc church and also a ancient portuguese fortress!

But in the surroundings many pirates and artists from Europe settled down!

In that time Boa Viagem was a magnificent place, nowadays it remains gorgeous!
