R. da Aurora is a fine example of European colonial architecture. Aurora means “sunrise”, and the street got its name from the fact that all the buildings are facing east. The street is lined with lush gardens and elegant Dutch architectural buildings.

  • Bright colored space that takes its colors to the banks on the right side of the river Beberibe and Capibaribe, left-side Visual spectacular.

  • After going to the praça da república I suggest picking up the street of the Sun to have a view of the old houses of Rua da Aurora. After that you can cross the bridge Princess Elizabeth where occurs the Galo da Madrugada Carnival or the iron bridge. Go walking and contemplating the museums, the architecture, the monuments in honour of the "Manguebeat" and the "torture never again." Dawn you have the view of the Republic square, the Town Hall, the river Capibaribe and mangroves

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.
