  • The Church of the mother of God is located in the neighborhood of old Recife. Is a wonderful place not only for your wonderful architecture and frescoes, but the peace we feel when we go into the Church. When I was a kid, I thought that the sky should be. Well worth checking out.

  • This is one of the many churches that populate the city of Recife and that denotes also the faith that retains much of the population.

  • The Church of the mother of God is one of the most beautiful Catholic temples and well-preserved of the reef. Erected in 1655, suffered some modifications, being the largest one in 1931, when it was built s second Bell Tower. Account with Rico high altar in gilt (restored after the fire of 1971) and side chapels adorned with sacred images.

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.
