  • I've been here for 3 years. Beautiful place, beautiful architecture and easy location. My surprise was seeing many shops closed. The food court was a place with more movement. Strolled, we take a coffee. Good to know.

  • People of my Brazil, worth knowing the site for its importance and architectural history, but, as I mentioned there are many closed stores. The food ok and excellent coffees. Go Architects!

  • Was preserved the architecture/structure of the original historic building. And there's a charming shoppinzinho with ideal food court for those who are visiting the old Recife. Recommend

  • execelente centro de cultura e de quebra é shopping
  • É proibido jogar card game, videogame, jogos de tabuleiro e afins nas instituições deste shopping, mesmo que você esteja consumindo. O elevador caiu semana passada. Triste.
  • Nice use for a historical building.
  • Excelente vista e local tranquilo, só não tem muitas opções de loja.
  • An historic place turned in a mall.
