Santarém - City of the Rivers
It's normal for the local government to inaugurate public works on the birthday of the city and this 347th is no different. This present has been in the making for some time and an expensive one. It's an additional 500 meters of waterfront, which makes for at least one kilometer of shore protection from the fast moving Tapajós River and a fantastic walkway overlooking the rivers and the city. I hope that another 500 meters will be initiated soon because this Orla facilitates public recreation and access to one of the most beautiful river fronts in the world.
