  • Linda Church, created by the brotherhood of black men, with the purpose of bringing women and black men to Catholic religious practice. Its facade is majestic and your interior too.

  • This church was built in the 17th century by the Portuguese at the time of the reign of Afonso VI, King of Portugal, in tribute to the slaves. Worth a visit for those who like history and architecture. Decent conservation status.

  • Old church with your architecture preserved. Worth be visited along with the other historic centre not only by tourists and as residents of Recife also love history and appreciate the architecture

  • Oldest church of the brotherhood of Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Pretos of Brazil, and linked to two Afro-oldest manifestations: the Congada and Maracatu Nation. Too bad it's not valued nor in Pernambuco and even in the country.

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.
