This is just a short post on Olinda’s Four Corners (Quatro Cantos), a really well-known intersection in town, especially during Carnival. The four ‘corners’ refer to the streets of Amparo, Prudente de Morais, Bernardo Vieira de Melo and Ladeira da Misericórdia. The last street on the list is called that way when going up it, but locally called Ladeira do “quebra-bunda” when on the way down. I believe this relates more to the stones that the street is made out of and how it hurts when you fall. You can see it in the second photo, going straight up. Here are two images (one and two) of where the Quatro Cantos are located.
