  • I went to watch a concert. It was beautiful with the Orchestra and the choir of UFPE. Unforgettable. The environment at night with the Golden altar is perfect.

  • The edification of the Church Mother of God was authorised in 1680, with the constructor and donor of the land the "Muscat" Antônio Fernandes de Matos. In 1709 the temple was completed, showing facade with two towers and the central body to stone. The interior of the nave is a large lounge with side chapels and a majestic severe monumental triumphal arch with two altars in the transept. The high altar is carved with niches and shrines golden throne in the Rococo style. The slotted liner of the chapel follows those of the chapels-mores of the Basilica of our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Concatedral de São Pedro dos Clérigos. The temple houses a few images that belonged to the primitive Church of Corpo Santo, demolished when the modernization works of the reef.

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.
