  • Historic and beautiful building, but lack incentive to your preservation and maintenance of the Museum. During my visit to the Museum have not found any reference to life in Brazil or your slave Abolition. I was in the Museum on the day of the abolition of slavery, and there was no mention at the time that the Museum has as your name. Regrettable.

  • Museum dedicated to African source. With itinerant exhibitions, some abandoned, deserves more attention. Free entry. Well located at the beginning of the sailor Cap.

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.
