Santos, Brazil


This card came from the June Jubilee RR in 2010. It shows the tram of the coastal city of Santos. Among Santos' attractions are the Coffee Museum, the Football (soccer) Memorial, dedicated to Pélé and other players from the city, and the largest beachfront garden in the world. For far more details on the tram than I can stand to read, check out this page on the tramways of Brazil.

The stamp and its matching cancellation celebrate the Centenary of birth of President Tancredo de Almeida Neves. Issued in March 2010.
