Belem is a capital rich in colors, smells and flavors, which can be noticed in every corner, in the gastronomy, in the falling mangoes, in the folklore, in the regional fruit ice creams. The city was founded on January 12, 1616, when it was built the Forte do Presépio, one of the places you cannot miss.
The gastronomy of Pará is considered one of the best in the world, it is closely linked to the indigenous culture, always innovating without detaching itself from the traditions. Its ingredients are exotic and marked by the diversity of colors, aromas and flavors. Among the traditional food, we can highlight the tacacá, the maniçoba, the duck in the tucupi, besides the fruits, such as açaí, bacuri and cupuaçu. Such cuisine, which has gone from being a simple food practice and became a way of life, has been developing and perfecting a growing number of techniques of contemporary international cuisine. Recently, Belém was elected as Creative City of Gastronomy by UNESCO. 116 cities from around the world are also on the list. Be sure to try it!
