Viva Brazil!

For three centuries, from the 16th to the 19th century, Brazil was a Portuguese colony. On 7 September 1822, the son of the Portuguese monarch, Dom Pedro (also known as Pedro 1st), proclaimed Brazil's independence.

Modernisation in all areas ensued, and also theabolition of slavery. Since then, every year Brazilians celebrate their country's independence with a host of events.
