Altar igreja nossa senhora de desterro
Rio de Janeiro

A primeira construção feita no local data de 1751, por iniciativa do Padre Ângelo Siqueira Ribeiro do Prado que levantou um seminário em louvor a N. S. da Lapa. A igreja veio a ser construída pelos Carmelitas em 1810, junto ao Convento que foi destruído por um incêndio. Ocorreram muitas reformas, e o prédio que hoje se vê é bem mais recente, contudo guarda algumas relíquias valiosas, como telas cuja autoria é atribuída a João Silva. Do Mestre Valentim provavelmente, são as imagens dos Apóstolos, chapeadas em prata.

More About Brazil

Here's your soundtrack. Okay, maybe they're not exactly brazillian but their music is awesome and their live shows legendary.Now, Brazil covers almost half of South America and its Amazon rainforest is the world's largest jungle... which is rapidly getting cut down. The country is basically one giant botanical garden with some bangin' cities on its edges.Brazil was colonized in 1808 by the royal court of Portugal, which was fleeing Napolean's troops. They didn't stay long, and Brazil won its independence in 1822.Its biggest city, Sao Paulo, is the financial hub of South America. Brazil is the "b" in BRIC -- Brazil, Russia, India and China. These four were labeled the world's fastest developing large economies in the year 2001.Brazil is known for three things: amazingly beautiful women, carnival, and Pele -- King of Football, Athlete of the Century, football ambassador of the world and a declared national treasure.Brazillians can tell foreigners a mile away, by the way their hips move. Samba is built into the soul of brazil and carnival is when it bursts out into twenty-four hour undying explosions of sound on every street.This picture of mask diving at the Taipus reefs makes me shed hot and salty tears all over my calendar, which is set on "January" right now.Text by Steve Smith.
