#17 of 41 in Sightseeing in Recife
Architectural Building Landmark
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.

Where to stay in Recife

It's no surprise that the vast majority of accommodations in Recife crowd around the city's long expanses of shorefront. Consider the southern coastal neighborhood of Boa Viagem for instant access to miles of vibrant beachfront, the prime location for locals and tourists alike to make the most of the sunshine. As well as high-end hotels and beach resorts, you can opt to stay in a range of fun, budget hostels, thanks to Recife's ever-growing popularity among backpackers. If you want something a bit quieter, look to the nearby historical town of Olinda, just 6 km (3.7) north of the city center. From there, you can easily make day--or night--trips to Recife proper.
