Círio de Nazaré Celebration Term "Cirio" originates from the Latin word "Cereus" meaning mainsail. In Brazil, in the beginning was an afternoon pilgrimage, and even at night, hence the use of candles. The taper was established in 1793 in Belém do Pará, and until 1882, came out of the Government Palace. In 1882, Bishop Dom Macedo Costa, in agreement with the President of the province, Dr. Justin Lamb, established that the departure of the Taper would be the Cathedral da Sé in Belém.
