  • It is located on the island of retreat and the more picturesque of this stadium is that it is surrounded by luxury residential building on your most is inhabited by football fans to make your balcony an extension of the stadium. In the 70 he also inhabited the opening of school PE games. Time of oura for youth of that time. The Sport Club do Recife was the only team from Pernambuco, won a Brazilian championship.

  • The largest stadium in the North/Northeast. It's not the most comfortable but I can say that the structure is very good. By Sport Everything!

  • To watch the games of Sport with teams in serie A, just be careful to take young children to the great classics. The best parking place is inside the Mall Rio Mar and you can get a uber.

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.
