Colorful houses at Favela Santa Marta, the first Rio de Janeiro favela to have an UPP in 2008 ( Pacifying Police Unit ). English signs indicating the location of attractions are posted throughout the community, samba schools are open, and viewing stations have been constructed so tourists can take advantage of Rio de Janeiro's vista.
