Fernando de Noronha Brazil Pernambuco

 

Can you imagine a prison like this? It’s hard to believe  that Fernando de Noronha was once a prison, between 1737 and 1942.

Considered a Brazilian paradise, nicknamed the Emerald of the Atlantic, Fernando de Noronha is an archipelago belonging to the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, consisting of 21 islands covering an area of 26 km ², in the Atlantic Ocean.

The main island is the only inhabited with about 2,600 inhabitants divided into two areas: a Vila dos Remédios and Vila do Trinta.

Although the island is no longer a prison, you certainly wouldn’t mind to be here forever.

Watch the video and tell me what you think.

Have a nice trip!
