  • The colours of the buildings are very imagianative, strange and exiting combinations. Come and go by taxi, affordable. Stop and taste local dishes and drinks, lovely. Take care in the hot season.  more »
  • OLINDA - Na Church SEMINAR. Ms. da Graça 9 am to 12 pm and from 14 to 17 hours in 1535 Duarte Coelho founded the shrine of Na. Ms. Graça to offer it to the religious of the order of Santo Agostinho, but these did not accept it. Instead came the Jesuits than in 1551 and made a building inspired by the Church of São Roque in Lisbon. After the fire in the city in 1631 the temple was recovered by the Jesuits and in the Arch of the chapel there is an inscription dated 1661 probably indicating the end of reconstruction. With the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1760, it was abandoned and at the beginning of the century the Bishop Coutinho became 19TH seminar. It is a very simple temple built at the highest point of the city and the view of the city from here is one of the favorite tourist postcards. The classic style of the building has been preserved until today being the best witness of Jesuit architecture from the 16TH century of the Brazil next to the seminar you can find all the building complex of the convent of São Francisco and the great cross of stone.

  • A place with architecture that shows a lot about the rustica it was the city of Olinda. A peaceful place to visit and enjoy a bit of religious contemplation.

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.
