Florianopolis, Brasil by urbane

Greetings,

After posting a photo thread on Bombinhas and Porto Belo a while ago I’ll present to you my pics of Florianopolis. Florianpolis (short nick: Floripa) is the capital of Santa Catarina state and. together with Curitiba in Paraná state, the nicest and most livable city I have visited in Brazil so far.

But before we get to the city, a couple of pics of the green countryside north of Florianopolis I took while in the bus:

A house in the countryside:

Getting closer to Floripa: the part of the city is right of the bridge is located on the mainland whereas everything to the left is on the Ilha Santa Catarina

Graffiti on the outskirts:

Did these guys have building permits ?

My first impression of Floripa: a grey modernist bus station like many others in Brazil:

A view of it from the hotel:

Another view, this time towards the waterfront, which unfortunately Florianopolis hasn't fully capitalized on, using it for parking, bus terminals, and a convention center:

Rua Felipe Schmidt, the main pedestrian street in Florianopolis' pretty historic center:

The Catedral Metropolitana, the biggest but, in my opinion at least, not prettiest church in the old town:

Palacio Cruz e Sousa, formerly the seat of government of the State of Santa Catarina, now hosting the historical museum of the state. Unfortunately, I couldn’t photograph the second floor:
