The Zones & Bairros of Belém

On Wikipedia, I came across a page (in PT) showcasing the bairros (neighborhoods) of Belém and as an added benefit, it broke them down by zones (not sure what to call them, perhaps municipalities). I’ve heard all but the first zone used in daily conversation as the bairros that make up the Zona Central are just referred to by their name.

Zona Central

Batista Campos | Campina | Cidade Velha | Nazaré | Reduto | São Brás | Umarizal | Marco


Entroncamento

Águas Lindas | Aurá | Castanheira | Curió-Utinga | Guanabara | Mangueirão | Marambaia | Souza | Val-de-Cans | Universitário


Guamá

Canudos | Condor | Cremação | Guamá | Jurunas | Terra Firme


Icoaraci

Águas Negras | Agulha | Campina de Icoaraci | Cruzeiro | Maracacueira | Paracuri | Parque Guajará | Ponta Grossa | Tenoné


Mosqueiro

Aeroporto | Ariramba | Baía do Sol | Bonfim | Carananduba | Caruará | Chapéu Virado | Farol | Mangueiras | Maracajá | Marahú | Murubira | Natal do Murubira | Paraíso | Porto Arthur | Praia Grande | São Francisco | Sucurijuquara | Vila


Outeiro

Água Boa | Brasília | Itaiteua | São João do Outeiro


Benguí

Benguí | Cabanagem | Coqueiro | Parque Verde | Pratinha | São Clemente | Tapanã | Una


Sacramenta

As a bonus, each bairro page gives a tiny history of each bairro as well as principal streets to be found there and the linhas de ônibus (bus lines) that pass through there (a fact which I will add to the bus post I recently did).
