  • Beautiful Church in downtown Recife close to market San Jose (sorry only the fact of your surroundings is very dirty and poorly attended by beggars and drug users) ... still worth the visit for such a beautiful work of religious art.

  • Beautiful temple with rich paintings on the ceiling and biblical passages carved entry doors. Undergoes a revitalization that is slowly regaining your unique beauty in the Centre of Recife! The frescoes are of Brazilian artist called Murillo La Greca!!!

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.
