#11 of 130 in Things to do in Belem
You get a true sense of Belém’s history when you visit Praca da Republica. The beautiful neoclassical Theatro da Paz, epitomizing the golden age of the rubber trade, is considered one of the 14 most beautiful jewels of Brazilian patrimony. The European-inspired architecture of the Theatro Experimental Waldemar Henrique and the Art School of the Federal University of Pará provide you with Amazonian culture both past and present. At the center of Praca da Republica stands a 20 m (66 ft) tall Carrara marble monument commemorating the proclamation of the republic in Brazil. The Sunday morning craft market attracts crowds of locals, but during the week Praca da Republica is less busy. Within its confines, you feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city and can laze in the shade of the mango trees.

  • This was a very nice park in the center of the city. Lots of local seemed to be very much enjoying themselves here. There were many restaurants and shops in the area.  more »
  • A nice spot to relax and enjoy the day. Shady spots available and no one bothers you. Bonus is the cachaca bar just up the street at the wide end in the middle, one block away.  more »

  • You can see the old Portuguese architecture still hanging on. But it's like a circus on the weekend. Local people trying to feed their families with knockoffs and reselling with the price higher than the stores. There are some real home made stuff there though. You just have to be careful
