The view of the new part (far) and old part of the city of Sao Luis, northern Brazil, May 6, 2011. Sao Luis, which was established in 1612 by French and then was colonized by Portuguese, now is considered the city of the most Portuguese style in Brazil, due to its nearly 4,000 buildings, with Portuguese hand-painted tiles outsides, preserved from the colony period. In 1997, the historic center of Sao Luis was listed to the UNESCO World Heritage List. (Xinhua/Song Weiwei)
