5 Rua do Comércio in Santos, Brazil

Santos was a small coastal town prior to the prosperity created by coffee exportation. After the Franciscans arrived, the Valongo neighborhood expanded during the 17th century. One of its first avenues was Santo Antonio Street (Rua Santo António). Initially, this area was poor. Then it grew into a main commercial district populated with mansions. Now named Rua do Comércio, this street is flanked by some of Santos’ oldest structures.
