The Niterói Contemporary Art Museum is a museum located in the city of Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro. Designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, the MAC has become one of the landmark of the city. The four-storey-structure with 16 meters high and 50 feet in diameter rises from the floor in a single cylindrical base and is inscribed in a square of 2,500 m². An 817-square metre reflecting pool that surrounds the cylindrical base gives lightness to the building. The Museum of Contemporary Art was completed in 1996. The permanent collection are in the museum on a renewable loan from Joao Sattamini, a Brazilian private collector who has amassed one of the biggest private collections of contemporary art in the world.

Hiking in Mount Roraima

Hiking in Mount Roraima

Share/Bookmark

Mount Roraima is one of the oldest mountain formations on Earth, a natural border between Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana in South America. It is around 2,800 metres tall. Its name is derived from Roroi-ma, which in Pemon means ‘big blue-green.’ The only way visitors can climb to the top is from the Gran Sabana side, in Venezuela. With sheer 400-metre high cliffs on all sides this is only one ‘easy’ way up. On the top of the mountain it rains almost every day, washing away most of the nutrients for plants to grow and creating a unique landscape on the bare sandstone surface. Arthur Conan Doyle populated the tepui Roraima with dinosaurs, strange vegetation and animals in his book, The Lost World, probably the best adventure novel of all times.
