This is the only city in the world where there are no men, they are forbidden to enter here.

400 kilometers from the capital of Brazil, there is a small city where the daily routine is unlike any other. The fact is that only women live in Noiva de Cordeira, and men are not allowed to enter here. According to a local urban legend (over the years no one knows if it is true) the city was founded in 1891 by Maria di Lima, who left home from her unloved fiancé.

At first she simply built a small hut, started a garden, and then began to welcome all the women of the area – the settlement grew little by little. Over time, the rules were determined by which all members of the community live. Men were banned from entering the city, which had already grown to 600 members.

True, the Brazilians themselves for a long time did not seek to maintain contacts with local residents because of superstitions. In modern times, Noiva de Cordeiro remains completely free to live – any woman can come and ask for asylum, she will not be refused even without documents. Women themselves do an excellent job with the work: they cultivate the fields, cook food, even arrange fairs.

At the same time, no one in the settlement of the fair sex is forcibly kept. Any woman at any time can leave the town, or get married. Interestingly, about a year ago, a possible change in the rules was discussed in the settlement. If they are accepted, then the men will still be allowed to come here several times a year.
