Via Anchieta Highway ~ Brazil

Via Anchieta Highway, Brazil Postcard pg. 1
Via Anchieta Highway, Brazil Postcard pg. 2

This vintage postcard from my grandparents' collection shows the Via Anchieta Highway in Brazil. The postcard was printed in Brazil, but it looks like my grandparents purchased it in San Francisco because of the stamp on the back of the postcard.

My grandparents have several Varig Airlines postcards in their collection. I shared one of them in a previous post. You can see it by clicking HERE.

Written description on the back of the postcard:
VIA ANCHIETA, moderna estrada de rodagem que liga Sao Paulo a Santos, atravessa a Serra do Mar e descortina ao viajante belissima paisagem.
The modern VIA ANCHIETA highway, that connects the most important city of Brazil – Sao Paulo – with its busiest port – Santos – carries the traveller through the mountains unveiling beautiful landscapes.
I will share more of the Varig Airlines postcards from my grandparents' collection in future posts.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Wow, Jana, I'd have a hard time driving that one. I'd be wanting to look out at the scenery more than at the road! Gorgeous photo!

    1. I hear you Jacqi! It looks like the spectacular views would be quite distracting. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. What an engineering marvel. It's beautiful, but I imagine it's very intimidating.

    1. It really is a beautiful highway, isn't it? Thanks for stopping by Wendy!
