Get to know the zone

Barra

The Barra da Tijuca neighbourhood, often simply called Barra, will be the heart of the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Located in the west of the city, it is surrounded by lagoons and mountains, and boasts one of the best beaches in Rio.

The Barra zone will be home to Barra Olympic Park, the largest concentration of Games venues, plus the Riocentro exhibition centre that has four pavilions and the new Olympic Golf Course. In all, the 14 competition venues in Barra will stage 21 Olympic sport disciplines and 12 Paralympic sport disciplines (see details in the map above). The zone will also be home to the Olympic and Paralympic Village, Athletes' Park and International Broadcasting Centre-Main Press Centre complex.

Legacy

Barra will benefit significantly from the Games with the construction of new sports competition and training venues, improvements in transport infrastructure (such as the extension of the city metro service to the neighbourhood, new bus rapid transit lines and road improvements) and new residential, shopping and entertainment areas. In addition, rehabilitation programmes will be implemented in the region's parks and the river networks.

A major post-Games legacy for Brazilian sports will be left in Barra in the form of the Olympic Training Centre (OTC). Dedicated to training and hosting high-performance athletes, the OTC will comprise 40,000m2 of space for 12 Olympic sports, along with specialist facilities in the areas of nutrition, physiotherapy, and sports and clinical medicine.

The Olympic Golf Course is another key legacy project. After the hosting the sport's return to the Olympic Games after a 112-year absence, the venue will be open to the public, helping to promote golf in Rio, Brazil and South America.

Copacabana

Arguably Rio de Janeiro's most famous neighbourhood, Copacabana is defined by its 4km-long crescent-shaped beach. It is here that the Beach Volleyball Arena will be located, as the sport returns to its spiritual home. Meanwhile, the open water swimming, triathlon and para-triathlon events will be held in the waters and land around Fort Copabana at the southern end of the beach, while the road cycling time trials will also be staged alongside this iconic waterfront.

A little further inland, the stunning Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, surrounded by mountains and gazed down upon by Christ the Redeemer, will be the site of Lagoa Stadium. This venue will stage the rowing, canoe sprint and paracanoe events. In the northern part of the Copacabana Zone there are two more venues that sit alongside Guanabara Bay and Sugarloaf Mountain. Flamengo Park will host the race walk, road cycling and Paralympic marathon, while Maria da Glória will be the base for the sailing competitions. 

Legacy

The rehabilitation and protection of the area's environment, particularly its bays and canals, will be the central legacy focus in this zone.

Deodoro

Deodoro Olympic Park will be the second largest concentration of competition venues during the Rio 2016 Games, promising a vibrant mix of traditional and newer sports. Located in the west of Rio, the neighbourhood of Deodoro played a prominent role in the 2007 Pan-American Games, when a number of new venues were built there. This resulted in increased participation of young people in several sports and the aim is to build on this achievement through the Rio 2016 Games. A sporting legacy will be left in the shape of the X-Park, which will include the Whitewater Stadium and Olympic BMX Centre, along with a 500,000m2 public leisure area, the second biggest in Rio.

The region has a strong military presence thanks to a large barracks and two of the venues built for the Pan-Am Games that will be renovated for the Rio 2016 Games – the Olympic Shooting Centre and Olympic Equestrian Centre – are used by the army.

Deodoro's nine venues will host 11 Olympic sports and four Paralympic sports in 2016 (see the map above for full details).

Legacy

As well as the X-Park, the Rio 2016 Games will result in substantial investment in transport infrastructure that will improve connections between Deodoro and other parts of the city.

Get to know the zone

Maracanã

The Maracanã Zone is in the northern part of of Rio, close to the city centre. It includes two of Rio's most famous landmarks: the Maracanã stadium, which will stage the opening and closing ceremonies and football matches, and Sambódromo, the home of the carnival parade that will host the Olympic marathon and Olympic and Paralympic archery events.

The J. Havelange Olympic Stadium, built for the 2007 Pan-American Games and known locally as the 'Engenhão' (after the Engenho de Dentro neighborhood in which it is located) will stage the athletics track and field events during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The zone's five venues will stage five Olympic sports and two Paralympic sports in 2016 (see the map above for complete details).

Legacy

While the Maracanã and Sambódromo have already been renovated, the zone is also witnessing big changes in the port region, where a major urban revitalisation project is underway. The project – which is breathing new life into an important historical part of the city that had become neglected – was stuck on the drawing boards for decades until the Rio 2016 Games provided fresh inspiration for its realisation.
