  • 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 result of the 19TH century modernism, the Malakoff Tower was built the waterfront as highest point of the city, in addition to serve as astronomical observatory and give the right time on the reef. The building helped the ships, each calculating the exact position they were from the location of the tower. She even used to be recorded on the navigation charts as a fixed point and was the seat of the 3° command Naval district between 1962 and 1976.

  • Place of great importance to the history of the neighborhood of old Recife. Usually happen shows and exhibitions. Upstairs, visitors can enjoy the beautiful view of the neighborhood, rivers and historic buildings.

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.
