Was built in 1915 , by Friar Domingues Riece the Immaculate Conception parish church which was first called St. Ambrose Chapel .
Currently the church has 1675.50 square meters of built area and has always been used as a religious temple . Underwent some reforms . It is made of masonry , plaster (the ceiling ) and wood . It is located in the center of Birigüi and its tower can be seen from a distance, even outside of the city .
Would be interesting to highlight the importance of the Immaculate Conception parish church history classes focusing on religion that prevailed in Birigüi in its first years of existence and how the Italian immigrants , among them the other friars who came to stay ahead of the church , important figures development in the city .
Power would also raise the issue of this church as a heritage material or immaterial since it is the memory of the Immaculate Conception , however , materially , building has gone through many renovations and is likely to have little remained of the material originally used . Namely , it is known that this church has existed since the beginning of the city , however, is not exactly the same , what is left is a memory of that first .
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.
