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.

São Paulo: Guarulhos International Airport (GRU)












City: São Paulo
State: São Paulo
Place: Guarulhos International Airport (GRU)







Due to its characteristic as a main international door for Brazil and the city of Sao Paulo, and also due to its privileged geographical location who turned it into the intermediary for the scales of the intercontinental flights, the Guarulhos Airport is nowadays the bussiest airport of Latin America, with more than 40.000.000 passengers per year. The current airport was built on the lands of the former Air Base of Sao Paulo, where the military aircrafts departed to Europe in the Second World War. Guarulhos receives nowadays most of the most important airlines of the world, like Emirates with its famous A380, as well as the airlines for domestic destinations such as Azul, LATAM and Gol Linheas Aereas.

Behemoth. Somewhat world class, though. Thanks for the tour.

There's some quality modernism (and some advanced business too, they say here) to this bright side of the large country.



Is this mid-20th century too? Nice looking. It's most likely essential to preserve some bits of earlier modernism within one's fabric when it's quite interesting enough like this.
People may judge it harshly today, you never know what they'll say tomorrow...

Indeed, it is from the mid-20ths. One other detail that is hidden in that picture is the bridge between separated buildings. There are a lot of them in the city, specially at the Paulista Avenue.

And before going to Curitiba: the São Paulo-Congonhas Airport, the second bussiest of Brazil, with only domestic flights attended by LATAM, Avianca, Azul y Gol. Also, some views of the skylines of this huge city.
