This is by far one of the icon features of Parintins, a town that really offers it's basic charm and overall Amazon community, not offering building sites. It really seems out of place, although basic it is by far the most modern.

It's a somewhat modern building, interesting for the cavernous interior. There's not a lot of sites in this town, so this seems to be on everyone's list.
