São Paulo: Catedral da Sé & Churches of São Paulo












City: São Paulo
State: São Paulo
Place: Catedral da Sé & Churches of São Paulo







Sao Paulo is an excelent example of religious coexistence. Combined with the traditional brazilian architectural ambition, the result are several imposing temples throughout the city. Among the most important are the Metropolitan Cathedral or “Cathedral da Sé”, with a neogothic style that it is somehow rare in Sao Paulo, the huge Christian Orthodox Cathedral with its golden domes, and other such as the Santa Ifigenia Church, the Melkite Greek Catholic Church and the Sao Luis Gonzaga Church with its neoclassical style at the Paulista Avenue.

Quick City Overview: Curitiba












City: Curitiba
State: Paraná
Place: Quick City Overview







Curitiba is widely recognized for being one of the mode advanced and wealthiest cities of Brazil. Its urbanism and architecture was strongly influenced by the immigration of many countries, giving as a result a very weird image in various parts of the city. The Historical Center concentrates many of the stuff to see, as always, with buildings like the Palace of the Libertym the Praça Tiradantes and the Cathedral, but the most interesting things start to appear in the neighborhoods surrounding the Downtown and the metropolitan area. Amongst these strange and gorgeous places are the Eye of Óscar Niemeyer, the Panoramic Tower, the Botanical Garden, and a collection of Memorials dedicated to the immigration waves, such as the Bosque Alemao ("German Woods"), the Bosque do Papa (Polish Memorial), the Bosque do Portugal and the outstanding Ukrainian Memorial.
