Located at Guiajará Bey. Regarded as one of the wonders of the state os Pará. It was elected one of the seven wonders of Brazil for being one of the oldest markets in Brazil. Best tourist, cultural and economic point of the city of Belém.

Great to immerse yourself in the noise and heat of a market. Interesting to observe the people and activity. It is not clean and that was everywhere we walked in Belem. Scavanging birds were having a great time with the rubbish.

The place is a bit dirty. But it's good to enjoy a beer along the river side. The price is reasonable.

Interesting local market, with great smells, different local fruits and vegetables (try the Amazon fruit juices), nice fried fish to eat. Try the fresh açai, tastes nicer and different from what you get elsewhere. Local art crafts for a reasonable price. Just leave your valuables...More
