The construction of Porto Maravilha revealed archeological relics rarely found around the world, turning Cais do Valongo into an outdoors monument. It was the world´s biggest slave arriving port that, according to historians, could have received about 1.2 million people brought from Africa, in the 18th Century until 1831. Cais do Valongo, or Cais da Imperatriz, is part of Porto Maravilha Cultural, a historical circuit that also includes Pedra do Sal, Largo do Depósito, Pretos Novos Institute and the José Bonifácio Cultural Center.
