The neighbourhood of Cidade de Deus ("City of God" in Portuguese) is part of the borough of Jacarepagu√°, in the Western Zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The neighbourhood was founded in 1960, planned and executed by the state government of Guanabara as part of the policy to systematically remove favelas from the center of Rio de Janeiro and settling their inhabitants in the suburbs.

It is portrayed in the 2002 film City of God.
