Belém : Michelin's recommendations
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. Out of this flourishing economy and the manifold origins of the trading posts was born a city whose architecture looks distinctly European – take a stroll in the streets to see for yourself. 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.
