This Favéla have name ;: Gusto 's favéla , Favéla do Prazères in brazilian

Une favela désigne actuellement les bidonvilles brésiliens (quartiers pauvres). Il s'agit de quartiers situés sur des terrains occupés illégalement, le plus souvent insalubres (marécages, pentes raides des collines), et dont les habitations sont construites avec des matériaux de récupération. Les plus connues et les plus étendues se trouvent dans la ville de Rio de Janeiro, qui en compte près de 968 (2008)1 et rassemble le tiers de la population urbaine.

 

A favela (Portuguese pronunciation: [faˈvɛlɐ]) is the term for a shanty town in Brazil, most often within urban areas. The first favelas appeared in the late 19th century and were built by soldiers who had nowhere to live. Some of the first settlements were called bairros africanos (African neighbourhoods). This was the place where former slaves with no land ownership and no options for work lived. Over the years, many former black slaves moved in.
