  • The location, architectural and historical importance in the past-it was an astronomical observatory-is a multiple space for exhibitions, trade fairs, cultural presentations and situated right in the Centre of Recife (Arsenal square, Rua do Bom Jesus and Paço do Frevo). How have programming that changes from time to time, it is good to check when the visit what's happening there. The tower itself is unfortunately closed, under construction with completion planned for the end of this year of 2018. If I visit it, see what's going on over there.

  • We were very well received by the Guide at the entrance, as well as for all other employees in each area. All very helpful and ready to explain the exhibited works. The day we went mamulengos centenarians were exposed and it was very interesting and fun to dive into the history of Pernambuco. Was also open to Relix display with pictures and stories of women women pickers of the Reef, an invitation to reflection of social inequalities in Brazil and valorization of ressignification these women give their lives! Don't visit the tower to be closed and the only caveat is maintenance of air conditioners.

  • Went last week and I came across the Observatory closed for visitation because it is in (I was told that the completion is scheduled for the second half of 2018). Is an expendable, but interesting due to the historic and architectural factor.

  • The place is beautiful and has a lot of story to tell. Secular building, facade well cared for and directed the exhibition facilities, fairs etc. Outside, a species of shell where happen cultural events like concerts, handicraft fairs, clothes and accessories, testing of poultry and afoxé, gastronomic shows etc. The Tower has a calendar of activities and functions as a museum. Not so much technology and modernity, as is the case with other cultural equipment nearby, but has beautiful exhibitions and is a site worth knowing.

  • Whenever I have something going on, but not always all spaces are open to visitation. Anyway, excellent service, full of sympathy and gratuity are very good and valid to highlight:)

  • There's no attraction that pays and can only visit the Tower of Sunday at specific time ... I can't understand why not release other days for visitation, is people working just to say that you can't, better close and put up a sign ... More useful!
