kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / Cableway at the Sugarloaf Mountain. The name "Sugarloaf" was coined in the 16th century by the Portuguese during the heyday of sugar cane trade in Brazil. According to historian Vieira Fazenda, blocks of sugar were placed in conical molds made of clay to be transported on ships. The shape given by these molds was similar to the peak, hence the name.

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / There are places hard to photograph, and the one that follows is one of them. The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Sebastian was designed by Edgar Fonseca in a modern style based on Mayan architectural style of pyramids. It has a standing-room capacity of 20,000 people.

Ipanema gained fame with the start of the bossa nova sound, when its residents Ant√īnio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraescreated their ode to their neighborhood, "Girl from Ipanema." @natgeocreative @natgeotravel @natgeo @lindbladexp

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / For about 30 years, the Picolino school has been providing opportunities for children and teenagers from low income neighborhoods to become part of the magic of circus. Functioning as a traditional circus family, joining the circus is far more than an extracurricular activity for kids. Picolino builds community, encourages leadership, teaches discipline, strengthens self-esteem and inspires trust and team work.

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / Did you know Capoeira was granted a special protected status as "intangible cultural heritage" by UNESCO in 2014? It is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is sometimes referred to as a game. It was developed in Brazil mainly by African descendants with native Brazilian influences, probably beginning in the 16th century.

An elevator for those who "love" heights, that goes up and down 70 meters with 120 people each time. I am still so happy for having being profiled on @natgeocreative account yesterday.

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / Pelourinho brings me wonderful memories of‚Ä™#‚ÄéHavana‚Ĩ, ‚Ä™#‚ÄéCartagena‚Ĩ and other colonial locations. Nicknamed "Pel√ī" by residents, this area is in the older part of the upper city, or Cidade Alta, of Salvador. It ecompasses several blocks around the triangular Largo, and it is the location for music, dining and nightlife.

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / Photographing people in Pelourinho with National Geographic Expeditions. As I always say, capturing people is more about psychology than photography. The area, a historic neighborhood located in the western zone of Salvador, Bahia.The roots of Brazilian culture are found in African and European indigenous traditions and cultures. However, a major influence is that of Portuguese culture. During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, German, Japanese, Italian, Arab and Spanish immigrants settled in Brazil and contributed a lot towards the multi-ethnic and multicultural society that we see today. Brazilian culture is enriched with literature, arts, music and sumptuous, flavorful cuisine. Brazil is well-known for its spectacular street parades during the Carnival

kikeo Photo by KIKE CALVO @kikeo / Drums in the Historic Centre (known in Portuguese as The Pelourinho), a historic neighborhood located in the western zone of Salvador, Bahia. It was the city's center during the Portuguese Colonial Period, and was named for the whipping post (Pelourinho means Pillory) in its central plaza where African slaves received punishment for various infractions, as well as for disciplinary purposes.
