  • A beautiful colonial building facing the ruins of the Senate of Olinda this once painful black slave market, is today a point. In it were sold blacks brought from Africa almost always to work in the sugar mills. More than a dozen small shops where you can find some craft items of Pernambuco but with a predominance of handicrafts and souvenirs. The most valuable is the superb view of Olinda that unspools the terraces gazebos on the back of the building. A lush tropical backyard where emerge townhouses, convents and churches. Worth checking out.

  • Former slave market and food, which today has been transformed into handicrafts market. No longer pelourinho, or fountain, as it was in the original style. Has a few shops, with few options, many small and crowded spaces, making access to the materials of the craftsmen. Inside has a few copies of giant puppets for photos, but not very attractive. Visit the market, which has a wonderful view of Olinda. It's a very limited market, with low attractiveness for the visitation, but it's worth going through the site and form their own opinion.

  • MERCADO DA RIBEIRA - Rua Bernardo Vieira de Melo all days from 9 to 18.30 hs built at the end of the s. XVII and the beginning of the s. XVIII, is a building in a U -shape with features typical of the colonial era. Their floors are brick and the terraces supported by stone columns. Here the traditional markets (meat, fish, flour) products were marketed. Since 1960, it functions as a crafts Center. To attract tourists he was erroneously called old slave market, but in fact never functioned as such. There are venues and shops of handicrafts, libraries, workshops of engravings and wood carvings, paintings and items of leather, rendas, straw, clay and terracotta, parts can be typical masks from paper mache and souvenirs of Pernambuco. A variety of prices.
