History + Culture

Best pousada, guesthouse, B&B, eco-lodge & boutique hotel accommodation for history & culture holidays in Brazil

 

Brazil's rich historical legacy is represented by its diverse and wonderful culture. This has influenced the country's art, music and food, as well as the architecture of its majour cities and towns, which are full of rustic charm. The older cities in Brazil and their historic quarters are lovely places to visit to see colonial churches and townhouses, and wherever you go in Brazil there are museums, cultural spaces and lots of artisanal crafts to enjoy.
