Fodor's Review

Belém's old prison began as a monastery, became a brewery, then an armory, a nunnery, and eventually the final stop for many criminals. Today, it is one of the best places to pick up traditional Marajoara ceramics and local handcrafts and jewelry. There is also a small precious-gem museum and a tranquil central courtyard.
