Baaaaaah, não acredito que eu li isso...

Porto Alegre a 10a cidade mais importante do Brasil?! Sim, é a 10a MAIOR, mas isso NÃO faz dela a 10a mais importante! Outra coisa, Belém não é maior que Porto Alegre... Manaus que É... E Manaus é maior que Recife também... Curitiba pode ter maior PIB que Porto Alegre (não muito), mas a região metropolitana de Porto Alegre é muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuito mais rica... Tem um PIB que é quase o DOBRO do da região metropolitana de Curitiba... Seguindo esse teu raciocínio da população... Tu acredita piamente que São Gonçalo (RJ) é mais importante que Niterói...? Tás precisando te atualizar...

Concordo com o Farrapo, ser maior não significa ser mais importante, ou mais rica!!! Não tiro nada doque ele disse! E aliás, nesse ranking de maiores, demonstra bem isso, já que BH é menor que Salvador e mesmo assim é mais rica!!!

Tenham um bom dia e cuidem se!!!

But he said the 4th most important, not the 4th bigger, so:
1. São Paulo
2. Rio de Janeiro
3. Belo Horizonte
4. Porto Alegre

Nice pics, BTW!!!

Pra mim isso já basta! Bom, e Brasília "não conta"... É a capital do Brasil e os parâmetros são diferentes...
how about talking in english so everybody can follow the discussion???

Sorry Muckie, but you are wrong. Curitiba is not WAY richer than Porto Alegre.
Porto Alegre GDP in 2002: R$ 13.079.160.000,00
Curitiba GDP in 2003: R$ 15.440.000.000,00
Porto Alegre pop 2005: 1.428.696
Curitiba pop 2005: 1.757.904
Porto Alegre GDP per capíta (GDP 2002, pop 2005): R$ 9154
Curitiba GDP per capita (GDP 2003, pop 2005): R$8783

So you see, even when you use Curitiba´s GDP from 2003, its GDP per capita is smaller than the GDP per capita of Porto Alegre using GDP from 2002 data!!!!

So, not only Curitiba is not richer than Porto Alegre, as also Porto Alegre has a metro area bigger than Curitiba, with 3.7 million people (4th largest in Brasil), and with many richer cities than Curitiba´s metro cities. If you take metros in account, Porto Alegre is WAY richer than Curitiba, both in total GDP as in GDP per capita.

So I guess you should really take in account the fact Porto Alegre metro area is the 4th largest in Brasil. And in economic and cultural importance, Porto Alegre lists higher than Recife, Curitiba, maybe even Salvador.

Very nice shots.
The older part of the town looks really beautiful (pics 44-56).

Is there some kind of bus rapid transit in Porto Alegre like in Curitiba?
