ABOUT BELÉM

(BETHLEHEM)

Why Belém?

NATURE

Feed your senses

The Mastery of Creation in all
of its splendor, awaits you here.

This is a pilgrimage to experience a transformative encounter with Mother Nature as sensed through the essence of Our Lady of Nazareth – Queen of the Amazon, and as nowhere else offers. In the words of Pope Francis’s Apostolic Exhortation, QUERIDA AMAZONIA, it’s in the Amazon that we’ll experience, A holiness born of encounter and engagement….”.

The Amazon region is, truly, other-worldly; unlike anything you’ve ever before experienced, anywhere else. Nature’s abundant splendor in this part of our planet, not only is rich and exuberant, but moving, and profoundly impacting, too. This also is a greatly challenged region of our earth, with numerous problems centered around poverty, neglect, and abandonment. It’s not just the world that needs to awaken to the Call to Consciousness which Laudato Si’ and QUERIDA AMAZONIA exhort, but all peoples need to better know and understand Brazil and the Amazon region, which we suggest begins by experiencing it, comfortably & securely.

Come, and feed your senses!

SPIRITUALITY

Feed your soul

It’s little known outside of Brazil that the world’s largest Roman Catholic pageant, revolving around the sculpture of Our Lady of Nazareth, Queen of the Amazon, takes place in Belém, every year on the second Sunday in October. Called Círio de Nazaré, it’s also one of Brazil’s largest annual festivals after Rio’s Carnival celebrations.

There’s no way to sufficiently express the energy which emanates from a rapturous gathering of over two million faithful who accompany the statue of Our Lady of Nazareth along the 2.25 miles (3.6 kilometers) course from Belém’s Cathedral to Our Lady’s Basilica, that Sunday, every October. That energy continues to permeate Belém, throughout the year. The tradition of transformative powers associated with the statue of Our Lady of Nazareth dates back to 1700. She awaits you in Belém.

Come, and feed your soul!

CULTURE

Feed your mind

Belém is an extraordinary and culturally rich colonial city, founded in 1616 by the Portuguese; it’s the first European settlement on the Amazon, and gateway to the Great River.

Aside from containing many splendid, colonial architectural structures (jewels, in fact) – considering numerous, marvelous churches of varied styles and different eras, spanning 408 years – Belém also has an unusually rich Belle Epoque history and sensibility, dating to its glory days in the 19th century.

Come, and feed your mind!

GASTRONOMY

Feed your body

If you want to try authentic, Brazilian anthropological cuisine, Belém is the ideal place, and @atable.br is the organization best suited to offer you those indescribable culinary tastes, pleasures, and sensations. As one of Brazil’s leading promotors of Amazonian gastronomy, @atable.br has curated a unique, customized, culinary component to our tour experience, sure to surprise and delight the most sophisticated palates.

COP 30

In November 2025 Belém will host the United Nations Conference on the Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting (COP). An initiative that was born at the 1992 Rio de Janeiro “Earth Summit” will be held for the first time in its history, in Brazil, next year, when the eyes of the world will indeed be focused on Belém – a city that well represents the expressions from which Laudato Si’ and QUERIDA AMAZONIA are sourced. This is also an ideal time to visit Belém, as the city is experiencing a significant revitalization: restoring and enhancing its public spaces and monuments, in preparation for the COP 30 event.

BELÉM = AMAZON

As Pope Francis states at the very onset of his Apostolic Exhortation QUERIDA AMAZONIA, “The beloved Amazon region stands before the world in all its splendour, its drama and its mystery”. QUERIDA AMAZONIA TOURS has crafted a first-in-kind and best-in-class travel experience, intended to be transformative; let us feed your senses, mind, body, and soul in Belém.

Mother of the Amazon region

Mother of life,
in your maternal womb Jesus took flesh,
the Lord of all that exists.
Risen, he transfigured you by his light
and made you the Queen of all creation.
For that reason, we ask you, Mary, to reign
in the beating heart of Amazonia.

Show yourself the Mother of all creatures,
in the beauty of the flowers, the rivers,
the great river that courses through it
and all the life pulsing in its forests.
Tenderly care for this explosion of beauty.

Pope Francis, QUERIDA AMAZONIA
