  • The site keeps the memory of a past deplorable: during a certain period between the 18th and 19th centuries, the area housed a huge mass grave where they were dumped the bodies of the Africans, brought to be slaves in Brazil, died during the journey between his capture and the arrival at the port of Mgarr. What's there is a past lost and forgotten, that needs to be always and increasingly studied not to be repeated. Curious fact: despite the sad story (not just the home that houses the IPN is on top of the old cemetery, but practically the whole neighborhood), the House has a pleasant climate and pleasurable.

  • The Institute is located on an archaeological site discovered by chance, in a work at home. What if you thought were bone fragments of the old black cemetery new (blacks who resisted African trip not to Brazil) who had in place. The pieces, which also include other artifacts such as arrowheads, rings, beads, glass beads, porcelain and shells, are displayed under glass pyramids. There are also explanatory panels and pictures. Interesting.

  • A former slave cemetery and archaeological site. Place which houses a history that must never be forgotten and symbolizes the fight to show who we really are and where we came from. Unfortunately lack of Government assistance for the preservation and appreciation of space!

  • O local está evidenciado o cemitério do antigo mercado de escravos do Valongo. O mercado abrangia ruas dos bairros da Saúde e Gamboa, nele seres humanos (africanos cativos) eram postos à venda para a escravidão. Os cativos que morriam no mercado, em decorrência de doenças e maus tratos eram inumados nesse cemitério de vala comum. Após a extinção do tráfego legal de escravos o local foi loteado e casas foram construídas sobre o campo santo, até que em 1996 o casal Guimarães descobrem a necrópole por acidente. Hoje o local é pesquisado pelo arqueólogo e historiador Reinaldo Bernardes Tavares, UFRJ - Museu Nacional (PPGArq).
  • Espaço cultural de resistência na cidade. Na luta dos seus idealizadores, mantém a história da região e celebra a cultura africana.
  • História muito rica e esquecida por muito tempo
  • Ricas informações sobre a cultura africana aqui no Brasil
  • Obrigatório para.conecer a História do Rio e do país.
