African-Brazilian religions ritual areas in Guarulhos
Although the local African religions are barely known, some data
reveal their importance in the city of Guarulhos when comparing with other
cities in the State of São Paulo. This paper triggers a discussion about this
importance by doing a first reading of the representativeness of religious ritual
areas, Candomblé Temples, called “terreiros,” in the city, and proposing further
investigation of the matter in order to foster historical and cultural awareness.
This awareness, when connected to religion, allows a better understanding of
these religions by the public and the development of research and heritage
