Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes, Recife
(3.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
At Carnival an army of giant Olinda heads parade the city streets. Each head portrays a celebrity icon, a famous politician, or a fictional character from a film or book. No matter the subject matter, it is a fantastically silly spectacle that's a cultural phenomenon specific to Brazil. Lucky for you, Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes is open all year long. There you can view past heads and even try on a few for size. The outlandish expressions on the head's faces are sure to bring a smile to yours as you pose for photo after photo between the gigantic craniums. Plan your Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes visit and explore what else you can see and do in Recife using our Recife holiday planner.

  • Little acquis and with few explanations about the dolls. We had to ask a local person the stories but just informed us of some. Missing a folder or an explanation in Doll House

  • I thought the dolls beautiful and interesting. Well done. However, the value of the entry was expensive ... understand that they need to charge to keep the space, but a lower value would be interesting ...

  • Very cool, even has tourist guide in place and will explain one by one of the dolls, after whom it is because. Pay a nominal fee to keep a small group of children who develop some activities for the common good.
