Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes, Recife

(3.8/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Interesting artistic expression of the State of Pernambuco, it seems, with aesthetic beauty varied; has charging admission to enjoy them.

  • Worth knowing because we won't be able to see all the dolls in one Carnival. I think the site should be more attractive.
