Copacabana, Brazil

Travel to Copacabana

Copacabana (Portuguese pronunciation:┬á[k╔öpaka╦łb╔É╠ân╔É]) is a bairro (neighbourhood) located in the South Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is most prominently known for its 4┬ákm (2.5┬ámiles) balneario beach, which is one of the most famous in the world.

The district was originally called Sacopenapã (translated from the Tupi language, it means "the way of the socós", the socós being a kind of bird) until the mid-18th century. It was renamed after the construction of a chapel holding a replica of the Virgen de Copacabana, the patron saint of Bolivia.
