Museu do Ipiranga



Brazil was a colony of Portugal until September 7, 1822 when we then became an Empire, ruled by D. Pedro I, and after by D. Pedro II, both part of the royal families who run Portugal. Yeah, it's weird. According to a legend, D. Pedro I shouted "Independence or death!", while riding his horse close to the place where later this builiding in the picture got built. Although it was meant to be the symbol of independence, it was only ready in 1895.

A bit of history there...I like the yellowish color of this building...but looks very modern to me even it was built in 1895

"Grito do Ipiranga", this is a expression that we use in Portugal and i'm sure you use it too.

Um abraço
