Abstract: This article intends to analyze the taxidriver's impressions and interpretations about the changes that have been taken place in the city of Belém throughout the XXth century. hence, the taxi-drivers of Belém appear as owners of a knowledge concerning the town based in the practice of getting around an urban area, revealing a collective memory connected to the process of changing of the town's landscape. So, an imaginary emerges built inside a professional category in relation to the city of Belém, as well as representations, ideas, imaginings and complaints involving the life in town. Therefore, the taxi-driver's points of view about Belém are exposed when they tell their narratives of supernatural meetings with ghosts and haunting.
