Beautiful photos.

... I can't help but notice that all those homes are not surrounded by fencing or whatever to keep them "safe" from criminals.

I also notice that the demographics of Florianopolis look quite different from the demographics Sao Paulo or Rio or Recife or BH.

Which group of Europeans settled in Florianopolis historically?

Bridges.
Florianópolis is not an isolated island. It's a state capital, and very close to the mainland.

Beautiful pictures, Maria Theresa.

Florianopolis is much safer than SP, Rio and BH, so that´s why the homes have no fences. In the mentioned cities, only homes inside gated communities are so open.


Azoreans and spaniards is what everyone says about Florianopolis, but also italians and germans settled in Florianopolis I believe. In recent years, affluent people from Sao Paulo, Rio and BH have also settled in Florianopolis.

I thought the same when I visited Florianopolis. Another common thing with Miami is the incredible amount of gay people.
