As Gilberto Gil said a few years ago, "Brazil's identity lies in its diversity". Thus, since its discovery in 1500 by Pedro Alvares Cabral, the Portuguese origins of the colonists have blended with the roots of indigenous and African peoples, Italians and Japanese, Lebanese and Germans, to form a people renowned for being joyful and engaging. If the word 'Brazil' already reminds us of music, warm hospitality, lush forest landscapes and heavenly beaches, living in Brazil is an incredible experience. From the vibrant Sao Paulo to the wild Amazon, from cheerful and sporty Rio de Janeiro to the calm and gentle Bahia, every corner of this country is worth exploring. With its size close to that of Europe, Brazil offers great options for all travellers and adventurers.
