  • This street has several old houses, including a museum. The Capibaribe River skirts the street throughout your extension on one side and, on the other side, Sun Street. They got these names because the sun shines at birth first to rua da aurora and, at dusk, heats up the street of the Sun.

  • Beautiful view of the reef, Sung and told by so many artists who passed through there. Does not have great options of bars or restaurants but worth the visit for your historical importance to the reef. Avoid taking valuables.

  • This place, though decadent, is very beautiful. There you can see our Brazilian Venice. Very nice city, crossed by bridges and rivers Capibaribe and Beberibe. A pity that the cleaning generally leave something to be desired. But worth knowing. Place not to be missed is a visit to the secular Santa Isabel theater
