Photographer's Note

This is the square in front Immaculate Conception of Mary Church. The first Borrazopolitan church was located in the the place of the lower part of the image, where I was baptized. It was built in timber and was demolished around 1968, when the modernist church got a roof and permitted the people stay there for the masses.
In the same place of the former church was created a big hall of parties in timber, at left it was a catholic school, made in timber, where I learned to write, these buildings were demolished in the 1980's.
The square and the sports court, at left, were restored and the church is being restored too, after a big storm that destroyed its roof. The monumental tower of the church never was built.
In front of the fa軋de you can see a big statue of Immaculate Conception of Mary, the patron saint of the city, this statue is an artwork of Roverson Tales Turek, a local artist. Here you can see the tower of communication company and the water reservoir of the town.
During Sacred Friday the locals use the top part of the veranda of the church as a stage to create an amateur theater and show the life of Jesus for the people who stay in the square.

Essa uma vista da Pra軋 da Matriz. A primeira igreja de Borrazpolis se localizava nesse espa輟, na parte baixa da foto, foi onde eu fui batizado. Era uma linda igreja de madeira que foi demolida por volta de 1968, quando a igreja modernista j tinha um telhado para abrigar os fi駟s. Infelizmente a torre monumental da igreja jamais saiu do papel.
No lugar da antiga igreja criaram um enorme sal縊 de festas, onde meu tio se casou e onde o povo assistiu a primeira final de copa do mundo na TV em 1970. Mais esquerda ficava a antiga escola paroquial, onde aprendi a ler e a escrever. Esses dois pr馘ios de madeira foram demolidos na d馗ada de 1980 e deram lugar pra軋.
Nos ltimos dias o gin疽io de esportes, esquerda, a pra軋 e a igreja est縊 sendo restaurados. Na fachada vemos a imagem da Imaculada Concei鈬o, padroeira da cidade, uma escultura de Roverson Tales Turek. Podemos ainda ver a torre da companhia telefnica e o reservatrio de 疊ua da cidade.
Durante a sexta-feira santa, os artistas amadores locais usam a marquise da igreja como palco para contar a histria de Jesus enquanto o povo assiste a tudo dessa pra軋.
