  • Lindai Church, which still keeps the secular architecture, surrounded by history with masses practically daily. Watched a mass there and it was wonderful, anyone strolling through the Central Valley to think come and meet.

  • beautiful copy of Pernambuco, Baroque works in the stonework façade and remarkable set of jars inside. the length of the ship, six side altars, three on each side, dedicated to Saints fluttering about peanhas in his baroque altarpieces, with emphasis on those of the Sagrada Familia and Santa Teresa. There are paintings on the limestones in imitation of marble. Cross-shaped, two side chapels with baroque altars and stained glass Windows in the Chapel and mor an amazing golden Baroque altar with carvings interspersed by frames and choir stalls in rosewood. In the Centre, is the image of the Patron Saint in natural size. In the lining there is a well worn painting representing the proefeta Elijah rising into heaven in a chariot of fire. The Church comes passing by restoration without closing to the public, performing for parts recovery work of the altars. The wooden lining will be recovered in the same mould, without closing the temple.

  • Excellent place for anyone who loves history, look for the tour guide Ricardo Maciel, a lot of people know him, he knows everything about Recife and more, multi-lingual and is very dynamic and patient. I found him in the only clothes and souvenirs fair which lies on the edge of Boa Viagem, he's always out there publicizing your work.
