  • 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.

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.
