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.

  • Disabled persons also need to pay to get in. Not like the service I received at the entrance and dropped out of the tour.

  • Where are exposed the Dummies who parade in the Carnival of Olinda, we find various personalities depicted there and the account tab a little about the place and identifies the characters. Nice to walk with children.

  • who goes to Olinda's always curious to see the giant puppets. in this House are stored the dolls throughout the year and during Carnival the Dummies "coming out" to the Carnival of Olinda. It's amazing the amount of dolls in place and as some are very similar to the artists.
