FELIZ ANIVERSÁRIO, SÃO PAULO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SÃO PAULO!

January 25, São Paulo's Birthday!
Happy 453 years!




I was born and raised in the city of São Paulo. São Paulo (in English, Saint Paul) is the capital of the State of São Paulo in south eastern Brazil. This post is an homage to the Birthday of São Paulo! I chose these photos out of the hundreds my husband took from São Paulo because they are beautiful and also because they bring back some lovely memories for me. When I was young I studied for six years in this School called Instituto de Educação Caetano de Campos, at Praça da República, near those buildings you can see below. I hope you all enjoy these pictures.

You see in this panoramic photo the Escola Caetano de Campos (School), Itália Building, Copan Building and Hilton Building, in the center of the city. Photo by www.fotosedm.hpg.ig.com.br

.

The "S" shaped building is one of Niemeyer's buildings named Edifício Copan. About five thousand people living in this building. Oscar Niemeyer (1907-) is the most famous Brazilian architect wich among many other things designed the whole Brasilia town, capital of the country since 1960. These photos were taken by Carlos Mascaro from the top of the Itália Building.

  8. Wow Sonia, this is truly amazing. It makes me want to visit there very much. The architecture is awesome and the city is so big with all those tall buildings! Lovely pictures that certainly give us a good look at your city. I do not think I could live in that big building with all the other 5000 folks! I would be claustrophobic!! It certainly would be interesting to visit though!!

    Happy birthday Sao Paulo!!!

  9. The more I see and hear about your city, and your country, the more intrigued I am. I love the old buildings, but obviously it is a modern metropolis as well. Tell Carlos he is one heck of a photographer! I got your e-mail at my Yahoo account about your friend's blog. I will check it out this weekend.

  15. Sonia!

    Muito obrigada pela sua visita. Adorei seu blog e cheguei justamente num dia de homenagem a São Paulo, terra que eu gosto tanto. Embora more na cidade natal de Nava, descobri sua obra não faz muito tempo e logo me apaixonei. Estou lhe enviando outros links de belíssimas descrições de Pedro Nava sobre os doces de Minas e a famosa feijoada. É da dar água na boca e de encantar a alma. Espero que você goste.
    Beijos.
