Prazeres is a favela up the road from Santa Teresa, with ridiculous views and even more ridiculous street art.
Prazeres means “pleasures” in Portuguese. Nação means “nation.”
45 local artists paint the streets chromatic in partnership with the FLUPP lit festival.
Start here. The mural reads left to right.
