Brazil, officially the Federative Republic of Brazil, is the largest country in both South America and the Latin America region. Its capital city is Brasília.


Magical community

Brazil is apparently home to a wizarding community comparable to that of the United Kingdom. The Amazon rainforest along with the municipalities of Caxambu, Manaus and Teresina may have significant magical populations, as the Daily Prophet saw fit to include forecasts for them in its international weather section.[1]

Magical government

The Brazilian Ministry of Magic[2] is the main governing body among the magical community of Brazil.

Magical education

Castelobruxo[3], one of the eleven wizarding schools, is located in northern Brazil amid the Amazon rainforest. Young witches and wizards from across South America attend to this school.

Magical games and sports

The Brazilian National Quidditch team has won the Quidditch World Cup five times[4] since the 20th century, when it managed to reach the quarter-finals.[5] It was a finalist in the 1982 Quidditch World Cup and the runner-up of the 2014 Quidditch World Cup.

Quodpot, a variant of Quidditch, is immensely popular in North and South America, which might include Brazilian wizarding community.

Magical history

  • Castelobruxo is implied to be as old as Hogwarts, that is, over a thousand years.
  • In 1991, Harry Potter talked to a snake that was a boa constrictor of Brazilian descent. When Harry freed the snake, it left saying: "Brazil, here I come ... Thanksss, amigo."[6]
  • In 1993, the yearly International Warlock Convention was held in Brazil. It was hosted by the Brazilian Ministry of Magic, which stated that it was "proud" to host the event.[2]
  • In 1994, Ron Weasley said that his brother Bill had a pen-friend who attended a wizarding school in Brazil. When his pen-friend wanted him to go on exchange trip, Bill had to decline because his parents could not afford it. Unfortunately, his pen-friend got offended and sent Bill a cursed hat that made his ears shrivel up.[7]
  • The Caxambu Style Borborygmus Potion was developed in Caxambu, Brazil.
  • Newton Scamander traveled by Brazil sometime, as it is known he studied the Fire Slugs in the country's rainforests.
