  • This is one of the strong keeps in good condition and one can visit. In the face of the Dutch war in Pernambuco, he tells this story. It is located on the island of Itamaracá, about 50 km from Recife.

  • Before I go, I had read something about it, which gave me a lot of curiosity to know the location, since it is pretty old. Once there, the Museum was open (actually not understood where it would fit a museum there), and I believe it's because they're digging in the region. But it's a strong, that is.

  • An excellent place to rescue the story of Pernambuco. The view is great and worth every second of the tour.

  • Place extremely dangerous! I went today, 12/07/2017 meet the Fort Orange, besides being banned for visitation, was mugged by 4 armed elements, had three more people with me. There's no policing in the area, local insecure. Do not recommend!

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.
