Piso original restaurado

This is the Portuguese Language Museum, opened in March 2006 and located in São Paulo - Brasil.

It was built above a Train station called "Estação da Luz", which is the first train station ever built in São Paulo, where the immigrants arrived from Santos harbour, one of the main entrances to Brasil at that time (end of 19th century - middle of 20th).

The goal of this museum is to tell the history of portuguese language in Brasil.

Besides the permanent exhibition - that includes a 106 meters lenght screen, a timeline, multimedia totem poles etc - there will always be a temporary exhibition.

 

The first temporary exhibition is about one of the most important works from brazilian literature "Grande Sertão: Veredas" (translated as The Devil to Pay in the Backlands), wrote by Guimarães Rosa.

==============

 

Saindo da Grande galeria, precisei beber água.

Bendita hora da sede.

Encontrei esse piso lindo e uns painéis explicando a restauração do prédio da Estação da Luz.

 

Esses vidros deixam a luz passar para o andar de baixo.

Pq antigamente as pessoas sabiam que existia luz natural, que era legal aproveitá-la e pensavam nos caminhos dela antes de construir os prédios.
