  • Monte dos Guararapes is a site that is part of the history of Pernambuco. Unfortunately it is not a place of easy access, so maybe that's why little visited by tourists. But it's worth a visit, as long as it is during the day so you can enjoy the beautiful view that offers. The place is very safe and there is possible to see Reef (Boa Viagem Beach) and Jaboatão dos Guararapes (praia de Piedade). In addition, the site has a church from the 18th century. Super recommend!
