This is the church from Ribeirao da Ilha, called Nossa Senhora da Lapa and has been built in 1806. It is in the middle of the main square in Ribeirao and it's surrounded  by many other beautiful and colorful colonial buildings. This small city in Brazil is such a great place to find out more about the ancient colonies and their influences in Brazil’s culture. And gastronomy!

This is how a typical colonial Portugese house looks like in Ribeirao da Ilha. Small colorful houses, narrow alleys, long, quiet beaches and lots and lots of good seafood restaurants. It's like going back in time, when the Azorean people first arrived here and colonized southern Brazil. They had no more place in the Azorean Islands (and no more pasteis de nata!:D), so they had to move from the Portugese islands and come to Brazil, in Santa Catarina province, in Florianopolis

Caminito is a well known street in Buenos Aires, in La Boca neighborhood (mouth in English - referencing the confluence of Riachuelo River into the Rio de la Plata - which actually resembles a big mouth). Colorful houses, tango, restaurants and many art galleries. It seems that the people living in La Boca were very poor and they used cast-away leftover paint to color their houses. But there was not enough paint of the same color, so that explains all the mixed colors on the houses!

Mozambique Beach is the longest beach in Florianopolis (it has more than 7km), a Paradise for surf lovers. It’s not so easily accessible as Praia Joaquina for instance, but that’s what makes Mozambique so special, as you’ll find here fewer tourists. The white sand is just perfect and the water amazingly blue. We went there on a rainy day, but it was extremely beautiful and the scenery so dramatic!

Ribeirao da Ilha is one of the oldest Azorean settlements in Brazil. And this is how the colorful colonial row houses look like, seen from the terrace of Ostradamus restaurant. Azoreans people mainly lived on fishing and they brought an amazing gastronomy to Brazil, based on seafood and especially oysters. And an amazing architecture, colorful houses and cobblestone paved alleys!
