As the gateway to the River Amazon, Brazilian city Belém is renowned for its bustling port, guarded by a striking 16th century lighthouse. Belém has a fascinating history as it was the first European colony on the Amazon, but didn't officially become a part of Brazil until the late 17s.
Often nicknamed the 'City of Mango Trees' Belém is crammed full of these beautiful trees. The picturesque cityscape is one of the prime reasons it's become such a hit with tourists. The majority of Belém's attractions encompass beautiful architecture and stunning natural scenery. Make the most of your time in the city by hiring a car from Belém.
For a taste of Belém's historic religious ties, visit one of the most famous monuments in the city - the Basilica de Nossa Senhora de Nazare - a beautiful renovated church with colourful character. Another must-see in the city is the Para Religious Art Musuem. Religious art, is very important in Brazil, here you'll see some inspiring artworks from Brazilian artists throughout history.
Located a bit further away from the city centre is Parque do Utinga. Offering breathtaking natural scenery, this park is a gem for those who want a little peace from the hustle and bustle of the centre.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
