World Heritage Sites – Brazil

    Brazil is the largest country in South America and is also the most populous. It is blessed with quite a few natural wonders, especially the world’s largest river, the Amazon. UNESCO has rewarded the people of Brazil by designating a number of locations World Heritage Sites. Here are my favorites, along with photos to entice you to include this country in your travel plans for the future.
