Belém is a major international port on the edge of the Amazon that wins over many a traveller… Originally an Indian village, the city prospered with the rubber boom of the mid-19C.

Then stop off at the Mercado Ver-o-Peso and inhale the heady cocktail of Amazonian fragrances before setting out to explore this immense and mythical area.
