But discovering Brazil goes beyond the language and songs. Stunning landscapes will take your breath away, such as the Amazon River in the North, the world’s biggest river, as it winds its way through the Amazon Rainforest.
Here, you can visit the beautiful Amazonas Theater in the city of Manaus. Although the indigenous presence has occurred throughout the Brazilian territory, it is in the Northern Region that the influence of the original peoples is more clearly seen. Local produce and handicrafts, made by Brazilian Indians, are sold practically everywhere. In the city of Belém, in the State of Pará, there is a 400-year-old market, the “Ver o Peso”, where you can buy almost everything from fresh fish to souvenirs, or even “love potions”, in the mystical section of the market. If it’s more hunger pangs, than love pangs, that are driving you on, this Market is your place. Don’t forget to try the “Tacacá”, a kind of soup, and to drink, “Açaí” or the original Guaraná.
