The 55-minute audio guide runs along corners and streets, traditional shops, synagogues and buildings significant to the history of the Bom Retiro neighborhood, beginning and ending at Casa do Povo. Functioning as an urban guide, the route incorporates noises of the city and voices of real characters that present their points of view; layering past and present and inserting us into the atmosphere of Bom Retiro through a sound-landscape.
