The walking tour is led by local actors, who tell the story and teach the culture of the community through intermittent artistic performances passing by significant locations on the hill. Later on, the tour will visit the local NGO Todos na Luta - a boxing school - where visitors will speak with the organization’s founders. The tour will end with a delicious and well deserved lunch.
