Olinda

3.5
World heritage site · Churches · Historic Walking Areas
Displaying some of Brazil's best-preserved colonial architecture, the World Heritage-listed city of Olinda has long served as a hub for artists and bohemians. You can feel the free-spirited energy in the air, as laid-back locals experience life and appreciate the beauty of their city on the country's northeast coast. With a population of about 400,000, the mid-sized city offers a much more relaxed ambience than its close neighbor, Recife, attracting visitors who seek more classical Brazilian culture. Brimming with centuries-old churches, artisan shops, and extensive art galleries, there's no shortage of things to do in Olinda. When using our Brazil tour itinerary builder site to make an itinerary online, Olinda holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Where to stay in Olinda

In keeping with the city's quaint heritage and architecture, most of the accommodations in Olinda are small, family-run inns or private rentals. This generally keeps prices low, with plenty of budget options available, although during carnival time expect to pay triple the usual rate on almost any inn or hotel in town. The old-town neighborhood of Carmo, with its proximity to many of the best attractions in Olinda, offers by far the highest concentration of places to stay and allows you to immerse yourself in the charming surroundings. Look along the city's northern coast to find several good beachside hotels where you can relax and find easy access to the water.
