Christianity is the dominant religion in Brazil, and, taking advantage of the colonization of the Country in the midst of the flourishing period of the Baroque, and the immense wealth of that time, everywhere are seen hundreds of churches that make the pride of the Portuguese who visit them .
The times do not stop, the styles evolve, and Brazil has developed an aesthetic of its own, enriching its heritage. It is not possible to visit Brazil without the dazzle of some of its temples
The slave flow to Brazil, allowed the convergence there of several African native religions, each with its orixá. Gathering all them, a new religion was born in Brazil, Candomblé with multiple orixás.
Because, contrary to what is common in other places, in Brazil religions do not bet on exclusivity, Candomblé
was tolerated in proximity to other religions, so it is natural to see their worship on the stairs of the Christian Church of Senhor do Bonfim. This is, however, only the most visible of a religion that only in Salvador seems to be practiced in more than 2000 "terreiros", and thatfrom Brazil, was expanded, even reaching Europe.
One of the most deplorable aspects of what I perceived in São Paulo is the profusion of graffiti without any order or aesthetics, soiling everything that was possible, including gables of seemingly inaccessible buildings.
In Salvador, despite the sad degradation of many of its emblematic buildings and spaces, the situation is not so serious, and the graffiti that I noticed do not shock ... on the contrary.
