    The ribeira market has a good tourism potential, because there we can have an idea of a piece of history by building that once served as a slave market, but at the time I visited the place was without structure, with few shops working, well abandoned. We bought some souvenirs of local crafts in the shops that were working, interesting parts and with good price. The view is also a strong point of attraction.

    This old slave market called Mercado da Ribeira in Olinda is such a great place to walk around and see all the local craft. If you have the time to hire a local guide to listen to the history of Olind...  more »

    It's a small space, but with a good sample of the craft. Better than the market near the Cathedral Church of Olinda. However, it has few shops.

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.
