Saint Clair Convent Cemetery

The Franciscans funded the Saint Clair Convent back in 1673 and their cemetery is on the right side of the convent complex. It's very peaceful place, where Taubaté's people commemorate their loved and missed ones. It's one of oldest cemeteries of the city. On that same cemetery were they buried lots of important Taubaté's historical characters, we can see many Christ's statues, cool stone tombstones and the richest families mausoleums that are very creepy at night (ok, I can walk inside the cemetery at night, but shhhhh, don't tell to anyone), but very cool to shot at daytime.

Where are only fear for some, we can see the beauty behind every statue, every mausoleum and every stone. That’s a place to meditate and exercise your Lomographer within, to see the world with different eyes (a Minitar 1, for example) and feel the peace of the city’s ancestors. It’s a very Latin cemetery, well, very Brazilian at least. It’s not like US movies, with green grass endless fields and et cetera. It’s very tight between the graves, almost creating a maze to walk and shoot some nice and interesting Lomo views. If you are in to the cemetery stuff, come to see this sacred place and get to know some famous Taubateanos and beautiful construction details on there. From Sao Paulo, get the Dutra Highway to Vale do Paraiba. Taubaté was 130 km from Sao Paulo.
