Brazil in pictures: Porto Seguro

Coroa Vermelha, Porto Seguro

On my last visit to Porto Seguro, the monument to the Portuguese discoverers had just been inaugurated. When I took the pictures the monument was not even a week old, it was all nice and clean. There are two groups of sculptures. The first one recreates the first mass held on Brazilian land by the Portuguese conquerors. The second one shows the native Indians, surrounded by wild animals, contemplating the Portuguese. The monuments is in Coroa Vermelha, a few miles north of Porto Seguro.
