  • Worth knowing Gilberto Freyre's House and a little about its history thinking in relation to his work. Unfortunately, the beautiful Mansion is not being preserved as it should. However, it is still beautiful and interesting. The guide was very friendly, excited and committed to the job. Great ride.

  • A leafy place and very green and quiet. The House is open to the public during business hours and shows much of the structure of colonization in Recife.
