About four hundreds years ago, escaping from Napoleon, D. Joćo VI, king of Portugal, arrived in Brazil with his family and retinue. First, they landed in Salvador and lived there for about 6 years after what they sailed southwords and settled down here, for the rest of their permanence in Brazil. The picture shows this place, a huge part of Rio de Janeiro's downtown nowadays, and the exactly place where their ships docked at that time. You can see it in front of the high black building on the left of the picture. It is where now is located the ferry boat station. Thank you for your vote and interest in my photo and portfolio.
