“Ver-o-Peso” da tua história ~ Market in Belém, Brazil located at Guajará Bay is called "Ver-o-Peso" following a colonial era tradition. Tax collector's main post was located there, and was called "Casa do Haver-o-peso" ("Have-the-Weight House"). It was in the "Haver-o-peso house" where taxes over goods brought from the Amazon forests, rivers and countryside should be paid to the Portuguese crown, but only after their weight was measured, hence the name, which later suffered a contraction.
