Our commitment to history
With 149 years of tradition and Masonic activities, our Lodge seeks not only to be a reference of an institution that crosses the course of time but also to transmit a legacy greater than ourselves: on our Facebook page, we have rescued, through official documents and strenuous research , the history of Ribeirão Preto-Freemasonry and families that contributed to the formation of the city that we know today.
