    Want to climb by car without the company of guides? Then Park in front of the Carmo Church, take the opportunity to visit it and enjoy the altar. When you leave, give tuppence for the valet and advertise that you already know the region, thanking the services and go through a narrow passage for cars that stay on the left side of the Church and that only the locals know. In such a tight space, many vans carrying tourists in and out of the center of Olinda and is not prohibited the passage of private cars. I didn't feel comfortable walking through the lower part of the city that is dirty and full of beggars.

    The Church is a square full of Palm trees. The guide told us that it took many years to complete and has suffered with the Dutch invasion that damaged parts of your building.

    Very old, your church building was started in 1580, was severely damaged with the Dutch invasion and rebuilt later. If you go with tour, soon on arrival you give to the Church, has a huge staircase in front, and just go with tour there was no time to meet your interior. The detail is that this church can be seen from the top of the Cathedral, giving impression of another Church, because it totally changes the scenario.

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.
