The work that aims to understand the role of climate in the construction of Brazilian national identity, characterized by native people: the Indian, the Brazilian fauna and flora and with a strong influence of Catholicism (image of Nossa Senhora da Aparecida) that comes from colonization Portuguese in the country. I also sought to characterize the tropical climate for this purpose. In addition to understanding the difficulties of applying the then notion of civilization to a country with a climate considered hostile and unhealthy, very different from the temperate that Europe had, the model continent for our “nation builders.
