Awaiting Your Return From Shore

   Belém, founded by the Portuguese in 1616 as the City of Our Lady of Bethlehem (Belém),  is the great port of the Amazon. Belém rapidly became  an Indian slaving port and a source for cacao and spices. The great rubber boom at the end of the 19th century gave the city  its great revival and wide avenues that lead from the impressive Praça da Republica down to the port, past a historical sector still replete with Portuguese colonial architecture.  

Pier Information
The ship is scheduled to dock at Escadinha pier. Take a taxi to town, and be sure to negotiate the fare before setting out. Walking is unsafe.

Shopping
Crafts (Marajó Indian pottery and Amazonia souvenir items), as well as local perfumes, are among the best buys in Belém. The major shopping areas are along Avenida Presidente Vargas.

Cuisine
