Brejo da Madre de Deus

Nestled in a green valley, the historical city of Brejo da Madre de Deus retains much of the old-world charm that has shaped it since its founding in 1751. Home to around 43,000 people, the city's name translates from Portuguese as "Swamp of the Mother of God." Religion remains important to the city's inhabitants, who make the annual "Passion of the Christ" one of the area's major events. Thousands of pilgrims take a trip to Brejo da Madre de Deus every Easter to watch the performance in the city's open-air theater, by some measures the biggest in the world.
