While elegant Rio de Janeiro and cosmopolitan São Paulo are best-known places in Brazil, the Northeast, or Nordeste, is the true heart of the country. The first Europeans landed here, and over the next centuries brought millions of slaves from Africa to the region. Added to the indigenous population, the result is a fascinating rich cultural mix.

Regions (States)



  • Fernando de Noronha - A tropical island paradise in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Marine National Park since 1997.
  • Olinda - a preserved colonial town with lots of great music
  • Juazeiro do Norte - Brazil's most famous pilgrimage site, located in rural Bahia.
