(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
Taking a stroll around the beautiful Conjunto Arquitetonico da Praca da Republica, you can see, dotted between the trees, statues of Greek goddesses, including Ceres, goddess of fertility, Diana, goddess of the hunt, Minerva, goddess of the arts and sciences, and Flora, goddess of flowers. Following the peaceful, palm-lined paths, you will reach a fountain at the center of the square, and a hundred-year-old Baobab tree, one of only a few of its kind in Brazil. As the original cultural and political meeting point of the city, several historically-significant buildings surround Conjunto Arquitetonico da Praca da Republica, including the Teatro Santa Isabel, the neoclassical Palácio do Campo das Princesas, also known as the Palácio do Governo, and the Palácio da Justiça.

  • Very nice to be among three major monuments of the city. The square has a great history of princesses Elizabeth and your sister q named the Palácio do Campo das Princesas, seat of Government of Pernambuco. Has a beautiful Baobab. Is a good to take a break on the sidewalk and gaze upon a beautiful garden.

  • When you look at the Praça da República composed by three secular Institutions and complemented with the wonderful garden, becomes almost indescribable such beauty. The downside, in my opinion, is the parking lot next to the Palace and in points of the square.

  • 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.
