Castelobruxo[1] (pronounced cass-tell-oh-broo-shoo) is a wizarding school located in the rainforest in northern Brazil.

LocationEdit

The school is located deep within the Brazilian rainforest. Described as a fabulous castle, the building is an imposing square edifice of golden rock, often compared to a temple. Both building and grounds are protected by the Caipora.

Similarly to Hogwarts, the building appears as a ruin if seen by a Muggle.

HistoryEdit

Castelobruxo is implied to be as old as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, as it is not known which school was first bewitched to appear as a ruin for Muggles. The school accepts students from all over South America.

Bill Weasley once had a pen-pal who attended this school who wanted him to participate in a student exchange program. The Weasley family, however, was unable to afford the costs to cover the trip, and so the pen-pal, offended, sent Bill a cursed hat in response, which made his ears shrivel up.

ReputationEdit

Castelobruxo students are especially advanced in Herbology and Magizoology. It is a popular destination for young European witches and wizards to go to for a student exchange program.

AlumniEdit

UniformEdit

Castelobruxo uniform consists of a set of bright green robes.

Etymology and pronunciationEdit

  • The name of this school is derived from the Portuguese words "castelo", meaning "castle", and "bruxo", meaning "wizard", thus literally translating as "wizard castle", or "wizardcastle".
  • It's interesting to note that, while Castelobruxo's entry at Pottermore seems to imply that the institution is just as ancient as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Portuguese colonisation of Brazil only started in the 16th century. This suggests that the school was founded by indigenous peoples some five hundred years before colonisation, when the country was a vast region of thousands of tribes of different ethnicities, also possibly linking the school to shamanistic magic and rituals. The Portuguese name might, therefore, be a byproduct of the Marquis de Pombal's 1758 ban on the Brazilian indigenous languages.
