This article aims to understand the process of the cultural formation of the neighborhood Madre Deus, through the categories of identity, memory, and space, as well as to emphasize the direct relationship of the residents as a watershed for the legal recognition of their cultural heritage in São Luís. It also aims to verify the perspectives of the law already in force, concerning socio-economic and cultural changes and possibilities. For this purpose, we are using bibliographic research, virtual research in local media, in addition to our experience in the locus of this research. However, it must be initially concluded that although it has a whole cultural collection of great potential, the formation of the Madre Deus neighborhood and its realities comes from the dynamics between Space, Memory, and Identity that form the social and political bonds of the place and that carrying out the analysis of the three categories mentioned above is what makes the understanding of the process of constitution of the Neighborhood more viable, as well as its relations with the society of São Luís.
