When you get to Rio, from the road that begins in the airport, you see a church on the top of the hill. Well I decided to go there and show it to you. My mother went there for the first time a long long time ago, but just in October I went to Penha for the first time. it is one of the symbols of our catholic faith and it is worthy visiting.. You will have a different view of Rio if you ever go there!;)

This is my mother Stella, sometimes she joins me in my tours all over the city!;)
