Patio de Sao Pedro, Recife

3.8
Patio de Sao Pedro (Saint Peter's Square) sits in front of the Cathedral of Saint Peter of Clerics, surrounded by historic buildings in an assortment of Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese styles, that speak of Recife's rich colonial history. As you explore the surrounding area, you will pass many cafes, bars, and restaurants, with tables spilling out onto the streets, perfect for whiling away an afternoon in the company of friends.

  • Beautiful church to beautiful-ditch where also large Carnival celebrations take place. The Church is now November 2017 top restored but is a picture of within

  • Lives full of drug addicts smoking marijuana and Crack. It was a good place to take kids. Cycling, see fish of the artificial ponds or take pictures. But now it's full of junkies and with them come the drug dealers and thieves (to the light of day). Get to this square in the late afternoon and the same as entering a "crack house". All kinds of fancy using outdoors.

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.
