The city in the live camera has a border with the state of Santa Catarina across the Negro River, and its headquarters is integrated into the neighboring city of Mafra, forming an urban agglomeration with a population of about 90,000 people.

In Rio Negro, where the live broadcast comes from, there are practically no attractions, but the Municipal Ecotourism Park, occupying the territory of the former Seraphic Seminary of San Luis de Tolosa, which originates in the Seminario Serafico Santo Antonio, in Blumenau (Santa Catarina), founded by German Franciscan priests is popular among tourists. Canon Jose Ernser was responsible for the appearance of the seminary in Rio Negro in this online camera, and the cornerstone was laid in 1918. Construction was completed on February 3, 1923, when 118 seminarians arrived from Blumenau. The park remained active until the 1970s, and in 1978 was added to the list of historical and cultural heritage of the municipality. Eminent figures such as Archbishops Evaristo Arns and Leonardo Boff took part in the Seraphic Seminary.
In addition to the town hall, in the park located in Rio Negro with the webcam, there is the Capela Conego José Ernser, decorated with frescoes from 1922 – 1935 by the artist Pedro Chechet. The chapel underwent a restoration in 2000, when it was named “Capela José Ernser Chapel” in honor of José Ernser, the former vicar of the Rio Negro in live broadcast.
The park also houses the Cine Teatro “Antônio Cândido do Amaral”, which, like the chapel, is decorated with frescoes by the artist Pedro Cheshet. Refurbished in 2002, it is commonly known as “The Film Seminary”.
Another attraction of the park in Rio Negro, where the online broadcast is conducted from, is the “White House” (Casa Branca), used by the Franciscans as a guest house, which later became the “Environmental Center”(Centro Ambiental) for the development of scientific research on local flora and fauna.
