Cathedral The locals have quite a peculiar character. Some travelers even say their behavior seems to be surprising and even strange.

Neither will they show excessive curiosity. The locals always have many other interesting and, most importantly, funny themes for conversation. The Brazilians enjoy smiling and their faces always express friendliness and kindness.
