RIO / Barra Da Tijuca
Barra da Tijuca is a neighbourhood and also a region of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, located southwest of the city on the Atlantic Ocean.
Barra, as it is popularly known, will have most of the venues of the 2016 Summer Olympics, which will be the first edition held in South America. Barra is well-known for its beaches and its uncountable lakes.

The neighbourhood is classified as one of the richest places in the country and based on the 2010 Brazil Census, it has the highest HDI (0.970) in Brazil.

It is believed to be the safest of Rio's upper class neighborhoods due to its lack of favelas and plentiful private and public security. With large mansions and luxury condominiums, Barra da Tijuca is well-known for being the home of the Brazilian high society, celebrities, and soccer stars.
