  • It covers the square inside the tour which you can do through the historical centre. It is a colonial architectural complex of State Government. Well maintained buildings and beautiful square with a beautiful sculptural group.

  • SQUARE OF THE REPUBLIC is one of the oldest in the State of Pernambuco and was built in 1642 by the Conde Mauricio de Nassau in the area of Santo Antonio. There are installed the Palace of Freiburg that had two towers, in an of which had a lighthouse and in the other an Observatory Astronomical (that was the first of America Latin). This Palace was demolished in 1770 and in that place was built the Palace of the Princess, which is the seat of the Government of the State of Pernambuco. It is a park public with beautiful gardens and surrounded by important and historical buildings such as the Palace of Justice and the Teatro Santa Isabel. At the entrance of the square there is a bust of the count Mauricio de Nassau, a large fountain in the Center and statues of mythological goddesses. A gigantic baobab is opposite the Palace of the Princess.

  • Be sure to view the giant baobab tree that is there and go to the middle of the square, near the fountain to get a good distance from the surrounding buildings to get a good picture of them. Another place to get a nice visual is the boat ride that offers great view of the square
