Brazil is a land which, according to a popular saying: “was blessed by God and is naturally beautiful”. A visit to Brazil means the unexpected discovery of a place of warm tropical sun and 5000 miles of white-sand beaches, of coconut groves and mango trees, of music and dance, of baroque colonial towns and villages, plus impressive cities of 21st century opulence and sophistication. As a whole the climate is excellent all year round. Famous for its football (soccer) tradition and its annual Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro, Salvador, Recife and Olinda. It is a country of great diversity, from the bustling urban mosaic of São Paulo to the infinite cultural cities that have reminders of Brazil’s colonial past, with churches, monasteries, forts, barracks, and other structures that still intact.
