Manaus holidays allow you to step back in time and gain a fascinating historical insight into Brazil's thriving past. The capital of the Brazilian state of Amazonas, Manaus is an architectural metropolis in the heart of the rainforest and very much a destination in its own right. Sitting on the Amazon River, the city was a pivotal outpost during the rubber boom bringing forth stupendous wealth. Today you can see its grandiose landmarks including the ornate Teatro Amazonas, an opera house famed for its Carrara marble staircases and beautifully painted curtains, as well as lavish mansions once owned by European barons.
And don’t forget the bustling Mercado Adolpho Lisboa, inspired by Les Halles marketplace in Paris. For a heady hit of culture and nature, all wrapped up in one, this is the place.
