  • When I arrived at the entrance of this cemetery in Sao Paulo ran into great track that now there are guided tours between the malls and tombs. Are Monday through Friday, during the day from curious, besides the tombs of famous singers of decades of 40 and 50, in addition to politicians, there are two separate divisions, next, that are: the Protestant Cemetery and the cemetery of the Ordem Terceira do Carmo.
