Originally a mission station set up in 1554 by
Jesuit priests on the banks of the Rio Tiete, the city of Sao Paulo
is today an awesome megalopolis, the industrial and commercial
powerhouse of Brazil. The city grew wealthy on coffee cultivation
in the mid-19th century, thanks to the rich soil of the region, and
the plantation owners took up residence in the bustling regional
centre. Gradually the coffee barons diversified their interests and
invested some of their wealth in local industry, resulting in a
demand for labour and a resultant surge in immigrant population.
Today 16-million proud 'Paulistanos' live in the congested, chaotic
and cosmopolitan city centre and its sprawling surrounds.
