Harry Wallop visits the small rural Brazilian village of Noiva do Cordeiro, populated by beautiful women who are looking for love
The picturesque Noiva do Cordeiro is nestled in Belo Vale, about 300 miles north of Rio de Janeiro, in south-east Brazil.
The village, whose name translates as Bride of the Lamb, has a reputation for its strong female community after its founder, Maria Senhorinha de Lima, settled in the town when she was branded an adulteress and exiled from her own church and home in 1891.
But the scarcity of males in this 600-strong rural community has led some of the women, who are known throughout Brazil for their beauty, to put out an appeal for single men.
