Full description
Start the tour with pickup from your hotel in Belém, then embark on your comprehensive half-day tour of the city's highlights. First, visit the colorful Ver-o-Peso market, located on the banks of Guajará Bay. Stroll through the largest open-air fair in Latin America and the most important commercial warehouse that supplies the city. Then, continue on to the Feliz Lusitânia complex, composed of the Sé Cathedral, Casa das Onze Janelas, with a visit to the Castelo Fortress, a landmark of the city in 1616. Also, see the Basilica Sanctuary Nossa Senhora de Nazaré, one of the most beautiful churches in Belém built in the neoclassical style neoclassical. Admire the marble decor and learn about how the building's history is mixed with the largest religious festival of the people of Pará, the Círio de Nazaré. After this, visit the Emilio Goeldi Museum (except on Tuesdays, when the museum is closed and your visit is replaced with a trip to Bosque Rodrigues Alves). The museum showcases a disciplinary mix of collections including scientific activities in the areas of zoology, human sciences (archeology, anthropology, geography and linguistics), and Earth sciences. Finally, pass through the main tourist points in the city such as República Square, Paz Theater, the Old Town, and more, before concluding your trip with drop-off back at your hotel.
