    Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    Castle Garcia Davila, 1 hour and a half drive. Located in Praia do Forte. One of the first made in Brazil. The owner of this castle had half the Brazilian coast, will the time of discovery.


    https://translate.googleusercontent....hpcXG1XDKUpR8Q

    Origins
    The Tower House has its origins in Alvares Belt initiative, Caramuru ( c. 1475-1557), married to Catherine Alvares, the Paraguaçu (1495-1583), one tupinambá baptized in France with the name of Catarina in Brazil - the first couple Christian in the Brazilian colony. The offspring of both, through Dias Diogo Alvares, son of Geneva Alvarez and Vicente Dias, born in Beja , intertwined not only in the progeny (Isabel de Ávila) of Garcia d'Avila with the indigenous Francisca Rodrigues, as the generation of Jerome de Albuquerque with the daughter of the village of Olinda , Muira-ubi - Maria do Espírito-Santo Arcoverde. Linked up later with the descendants of Domingos Pires de Carvalho, married to Maria da Silva; with the generation of Felipe Cavalcanti married Catarina de Albuquerque and the offspring of the couple José Pires de Carvalho - Tereza Vasconcellos Cavalcanti de Albuquerque God-will give, forming the framework of the aristocracy of the Reconcavo Baiano .

    The Tower House was the embryo of a large morgado in style feudal which began in Bahia captaincy still in the sixteenth century and that, for 250 years, has expanded over the generations of his masters for almost all of northeastern Brazil the cost of wars against the Indians , with enslavement of these to work in sugar cane plantations, the sugar mills and the creations of cattle, horses and mules (all these animals were used for transport over short distances and as force traction in the mills). The expansion was also motivated by the search for silver mines, although they have only been found mine saltpeter . [1] It is in the center of a significant military power in the colonial period . From 1798 onwards, he was involved in the struggle for Independence of Brazil . Many of its members were given titles nobility both by Pedro I of Brazil such as Pedro II of Brazil .

    In addition to its major role in the European origin of clearing the hinterland northeastern and territorial evolution of Brazil , the Tower House pioneered the livestock in the region and is associated with the so-called transit of Bahia Way , which fueled the Minas Gerais .

    The House and the Tower
    Was constituted in a sort of manor house, still the Manueline style in use for Portugal in their overseas possessions in the early sixteenth century, built by Garcia d'Avila from 1551 to seat their fields, fulfilling the past Procedure by John III of Portugal (1521-1557) [2] , as a complex compound "(...) housing and fenders, chapel , and a bulwark vigilant where burned in special circumstances, signal fires. " (Op. Cit., P. 83). Was represented by John Teixeira Albernaz, the old isolated over a mound, as a small tower battlements , with three floors marked by lines of loopholes ("Bay of All Saints", 1612 . Book that gives the Brazil Status Reason , c. 1616. Municipal Public Library of Porto ).

    In masonry stone and lime, its role was to monitor the hinterland on the one hand, resisting the attacks of angry Indians and the sea on the other, resisting the Buccaneers who then proceeded raids on the coast.

    Invasions Netherlands in Brazil and expansion
    In the context of the second of Dutch invasions of Brazil (1630-1654), his grandson, Francisco Dias de Ávila Caramuru (c. 1621-1645), helped in the defense, providing men and supplies: the house was used as a temporary refuge for Giovanni di San Felice , Earl of Bagnoli, who took charge of the Portuguese forces after the disaster in battle of Mata Redonda (January 1636 ) (GARRIDO, 1940: 83). The fields of Tower House, left the first flags frontiersmen who introduced livestock in northeastern Brazil : Francisco Dias de Avila II (c. 1646-1694), in the second half of the seventeenth century , after dominating the Cariris , pushed the boundaries this family landlordism to the hinterlands of Pernambuco .

    In the following century, his successor, Garcia de Avila Pereira , met the request of the governor-general gift Rodrigo da Costa (1702-1705) to replace the old Fort Beach, then disappeared, and had built at his own expense, the Fort Tatuapara in stone masonry and lime (Letter to Garcia d'Avila (3) in August 23 of 1704 in:.... "Public File Annals of Bahia (Vol VI)", p 157-158 Historical Documents ( Vol XL), p 180. cited:.. CALMON, 1958: 150), today turn disappeared. This morgado commanded at the time, one Auxiliary Regiment composed of three companies, with the task of trimming the coast between the Royal River and the Red River (Calmon, 1958: 130). According GARRIDO (1940), its artillery have been completed in about 1710 to 1711 (op. cit., p. 83). With the death of Garcia de Avila Pereira of Aragon in 1805 , in the absence of heirs the entail tower passed to the Pires de Carvalho and Albuquerque (SOUSA, 1983: 111).

    The War of Independence
    In the nineteenth century , during the War of Independence of Brazil (1822-1823), served as the basis for the Liberation Army of Waterfall ( 1823 ), providing detachments Cariris armed with arrows and war clubs , and the Empire rewarded their morgados the important services as below:

    Joaquim Pires de Carvalho and Albuquerque , awarded the title of Viscount Pirajá ;
    Elesbão Francisco Pires de Carvalho and Albuquerque , awarded the title of Baron Jaguaripe ; and
    Antonio Joaquim Pires de Carvalho and Albuquerque , awarded the title of Viscount of Garcia d'Avila Tower .
    By their appeals exhausted after the war and the extinction of morgadios in Brazil from 1835 , the Tower House was gradually abandoned, turning into ruins.

    Hi Crater,

    Thank you

    this time of year is summer. In the region I live, winter is basically rain and cloudy weather. Occurs in the middle of the year. In southern Brazil, the winter is cold and snowy times.
