Photos of castles, palaces, fortresses, temples, cathedrals, monasteries - Brazil

Sights of Brazil are distinguished by unusual architecture. The first Christian temples were built by the Portuguese with an inherent style adapted to the local climate. During the gold rush, new cities grew up with unique structures, many of which are now listed in UNESCO. The modern architecture of Brazil is called one of the most original in the world - an unconventional approach to the design of cathedrals and temples is simply amazing with its fantastic design.
