An Armenian Brazilian (Portuguese: armeno-brasileiro, armênio-brasileiro) is a Brazilian person who is fully, partially, or predominantly of Armenian descent, or an Armenian immigrant in Brazil.

Migration history

Armenian immigrants in Brazil gathered mostly in and around the city of São Paulo, where there are churches, cultural centers, and even a metro station named "Armênia".[2] The Armenian community maintains a strong presence in the city, albeit not in the country as a whole.

Armenians in Latin America arranged a demonstration in Brazil, in the city of São Paulo at the Armenian Genocide monument on 24 April 1965 of the 50th Anniversary of putting into force the Law of Relocation, and a play titled "The Adventures of Armenians 1915" was written and performed by Armenians of Brazil at a theatre in São Paulo.
