Built along the XVIII Century by slaves and ex-slaves of African origin, the beautiful "Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos" Church dominates Pelourinho Square's landscape, in Salvador Old Town.
One of brazilian most beautiful cities, Recife blends rich cultural and historical attractions with fine beaches. Here we can see Boa Viagem, a district famous for its beach... waiting for the rain! I took this pic from a plane, leaving Recife.
Built in 1869, in neoclassical style, the Public Central Market is one of Porto Alegre's most important landmarks, located in the very heart of the city, close to the old wharf, on the Guaíba River.
Another pic taken from a plane flying from Rio to São Paulo: the Sugar Loaf Mountain, at the entrance of Guanabara Bay, in an unusual perspective.
Here is another view of Corcovado Mountain (710 meters high) and Christ The Redeemer monument, taken from a bus stop. This "Number One" landmark can be seen from (almost) everywhere in town, like this street (Rua Humaitá), a very busy one.
This is part of the Immigrant's Memorial, a kind of São Paulo's "Ellis Island", in the district of Brás. Here, between 1886 and 1978, almost 3 million immigrants stayed in the "Immigrant's Hostel", starting a new life in their new country.
Here is a part of Downtown São Paulo, seen from Itália Building (Ipiranga & São Luiz Avenues). It was 3 PM and a heavy rain was coming.
Here is São Paulo's first skyscraper, Martinelli Building (São João Avenue), seen from the top of Banespa Building. Built in 1929 by an italian immigrant, Giuseppe Martinelli, who became rich in his new country, the old and charming landmark was dwarfened by the taller and younger neighbours.
