Cidade do Samba website

A complex of warehouses where the leading samba schools prepare everything for carnival from the floats to costumes and everything in between. A hive of activity in the weeks before carnival, in 2011 just days before the main event two of the warhouses caught fire, destroying hours of work on the eve of the parade.
