Belem

Trip Planner South America  /  Brazil  /  State of Para  /  Belem

City of Mango Trees

With its roots as the first European colony on the Amazon River, Belem has played an important part in the history of northern Brazil. You can see its story unfold today, thanks to well-preserved colonial architecture and an array of museums scattered throughout the city. Literally translated as "Bethlehem," the city of around 1.5 million people sits close to the equator, with a tropical rainforest climate. That means hot, humid weather year-round, with regular tropical rainstorms no matter what the month. Belem tourism relies heavily on visitors who use the city as a base before their onward journeys into the Amazon. Belem is in State of Para (PA).
