Street Art on Rio De Janeiro's Olympic Boulevard


One of the world's largest murals is painted on a building near the Port of Rio de Janeiro. Titled "Ethnicities", the mural features the faces of five different people - each from a different part of the world. The mural was completed in 2016, just before the start of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.

Social Media Description

Have you toured any venues that have hosted Olympic events?

We've enjoyed seeing the amazing venues in several cities around the world - they are all so different. When we were in Rio de Janeiro in 2018, we joined a smaller private tour group to ensure that we didn't venture off into any unsafe areas. We saw many of the city's well known tourist attractions plus had tickets to one night of Carnival parades. Unfortunately, the only thing that we saw that was brought to Rio for the Olympics was the mural named "Ethnicities". We'll have to go back!

What Olympic venues have you been most impressed with?
