Santos Downtown - São Paulo State, Brasil

Here I present you some photos I took myself (with my crapy camera) from Santos Historical Downtown - one of the most important cities in the History of São Paulo state and Brasil, first during colonial times because of its strategic location and later in 19th century, the main port where the famous coffee from São Paulo loaded to ships for the World and in the same century, the port where immigrants coming from Italy and all over the planet landed to populate the prosperous São Paulo state.


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santos_(S%C3%A3o_Paulo)


"A Muralha" (The Wall) - nickname to the chair of hills and mountains that separate Santos from Sao Paulo city.


Ruins of the "Engenho dos Erasmos", considered one of the first sugar mills in Brasil and South America. It's called "Engenho dos Erasmos" in reference to the dutch jews who, supposedly, helped the first portuguese settlers to fund it, finally starting the sugar cultivation in Brazil.

Very Nice!
It's bad to see that, with the exception of christos-greece, all the comments are from Brazilian forumers!

Nice looking city. I drove by there on the way to Guaruja, but didn't have time to see any more than the views from the highway provided.
