Barra da Tijuca is one of the most important and exclusive residential areas of Rio de Janeiro, especially for the socio-economic and eco–construction for the great modern American style, as the city of Miami in Florida.
Barra da Tjuca is a peninsula formed by 2 parks and surrounded by a large bay called Barra da Lagoa Tjuca.
