    The Church from the inside is very beautiful. Once again, for those who love of sacred art, which is my case. In addition to being huge! Worth the visit, and attend mass tb who is the center of Pernambuco.

    Wonderful!!! Love to see that kind of building. Show what the man can do with care and dedication. If you like this kind of sacred art, perfect to visit. Recommend a guide ... He makes the visit more enriching in May.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
