  • Part of the history of the city. Very good for buying souvenirs. Beware the stairs, are well íngrimes.

  • Good to visit on the appreciation of popular culture, but unfortunately the infrastructure leaves much to be desired.

  • every culture is a more iconic locations in the city of Recife. Located in the city centre was an old prison, which was reconstructed becoming a place of craft stores, which use the old cells. For those who have no interest in this kind of "art", deserves a visit just for the call history, and 30 minutes is more than enough, if there is-as mentioned earlier-interest in buying small purchases. The location-it's quite safe internally but nearby is good to stay tuned.
