  • The inside was one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. The altar is covered in gold, the walls feature original carving and the roof maintains a wonderful painting of Brazil's colonial era. The Church is set to be opened. We didn't know that and we were lucky to arrive exactly at the opening of 12:00. The nuns started a beautiful prayer and was extremely exciting. Well worth the visit!

  • The Church was closed the day we went, but the sight in front of her is a must where you can see the sea. I just think that for being a tourist point needs restoration.

  • At the top of the historic center of Olinda, everything is culture. Many of the places dating back from the time of colonization, that is, are part of our history. This church is one of these hidden relics in this place.

  • The slope that leads up to it is worthy of the similarity of names, but the ascent walking is rewarded when arriving at the Church

  • Beautiful historic church-beautiful interior and view, mass with choir and presence of nuns from the school next door. A handicraft market starts right at the beginning of the street.

  • Olinda as always presenting us with beautiful churches and historical heritage fantastic! The Igreja da Misericórdia has a very nice architecture, what caught my attention was the cino on top of the Church I confess that I wanted to get up there. The ascent of the ladder is not for everyone, but neither is very tiring. We have a privileged view of Olinda and Recife.

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.
