  • A bad point is that it is located right in the commercial centre of the reef, but it's worth the ticket and the Church and really beautiful.

  • Although situated amid the commercial hubbub of Recife, for being a historical site, worth contemplation.

  • the patio is quite interesting, is surrounded by interesting bars and space intended for tourism, but, as is in place next to the market, the itinerant trade is great, and should be be careful with petty theft, mainly the tourist who is around. Preferably it's nicer in weekly purposes, because it is much more quiet. Take the opportunity to meet the market of são josé and other beautiful churches nearby.

  • Ponto histórico da cidade!
  • Local que representa a resistência da cultura negra e dos movimentos afros do Recife!!! A Igreja de São Pedro dos Clérigos e um rico conjunto de casario completam o Pátio. No Carnaval é um dos pólos culturais da festa!!!
  • Lindo local
  • Bom para passear com a família, levei meu bebê de seis meses e foi muito legal!
  • Igreja muito bonita em estilo colonial. Aconselho ir de dia, à noite é um tanto esquisito.
