4.1
Opened in late 2011, Caixa d'Agua Alto da Se / Elevador Panoramico is an old water tower transformed into an observation deck offering 360 degree panoramic views. An elevator takes you 20 meters (66 feet) up from which you can clearly see the cities Olinda and Recife, the harbor, lighthouse, the different shades of the blue sea, and even the reef. Access is controlled, taking only a few people at a time, but the short queue is worth the wait. Caixa d'Agua Alto da Se / Elevador Panoramico serves as a great introduction to the historic city of Olinda.

  • Very good location. Pay to get on the elevator. We took several pictures, and, despite being cloudy, we were able to witness the sunset you can see all the reef in 360 degrees. Worth knowing.

  • Beautiful view. However, before moving to the private sector was still offered free exhibitions sporadically

  • This tower is the Centre which is open at 16 hs. Simple, but worth visiting. The panoramic lift/water Box I didn't visit, have you found interesting. The scene around is pretty much for pictures.
