  • Beautiful, but not go in because it was closed. Worry about watching the tour schedule in advance.

  • 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!

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.
