Santos - There are three versions of the name: legacy of the first Santa Casa de Todos os Santos, founded by Brás Cubas; a tribute to the ports of Lisbon; and reverence for the Santos Inocentes, who are reminded by the calendar of the Catholic Church on December 28. The city is one of Brazil's most important, it hosted the first Santa Casa de Misericórdia das Américas (Holy House of Mercy of the Americas), the first railroad in the State of São Paulo, São Paulo Railway and the first organized port in Brazil - the largest in Latin America.
