Photographer's Note

On sundays this part of city is almost empty, a good oportunity to take a picture. It's in the most central area of Sγo Paulo, close to Catedral da Sι. This house is known as "Solar da Marquesa de Santos", or Marquesa de Santos House ("Marquκs/Marquesa are noble titles, I haven't found the equivalent word in english). So this house belonged to that noble lady...

There are two interesting things about this house. Though it has been rebuilt and changed during its existence, the house is considered the last residential house of the XVIII century that can be found in Sγo Paulo. Today it's listed and was turned into a museum.

The other interesting thing is that "Marquesa de Santos" was the lover of D. Pedro I, our first emperor, that was also heir of Portugal's throne (that he would assume afterwards). But when she bought this house her relationship with him had already finished, so D. Pedro has never been here.
