São José de Ribamar by Night
Destination São Luís, capital of the state of Maranhão.
Night images of São José de Ribamar
The city of Saõ José de Ribamar is located at the other side of Ilha (island) de São Luís. The distance between the city of São Luís and São José is little more than 30 km. São José de Ribamar counts about 140 thousand inhabitants and is widely known for the giant statue of Saint Joseph and his son Jesus.
Since we had arrived in São José de Ribamar much later than we had planned, it took only a few hours before we witnessed night scenes of this pilgrimage village. As well as the immense statue of Saint Joseph as the Saint Joseph Church were illuminated by spotlights.
