This tour will give you, in one go, the best of the cities of Recife and Olinda.
The tour begins with a panorama of Recife, including the three sectors making up the city centre: Recife, Santo Antônio and Boa Vista. You’ll see the bridge of Maurício de Nassau, Praça da República (flanked by the Governor’s Palace, Santa Isabel Theatre and the Law Courts) and the Casa da Cultura, a fine building dating back to the 19th century. Originally a prison, today this building is a centre for regional culture, with craft stores and local delicacies for you to indulge in.
In Olinda, we’ll visit Alto da Sé, with the churches of Sé and Misericórdia, where you’ll have a breathtaking view of the twin cities. In Carnival, joyful revelers will parade down the streets, following after traditional giant puppets like the Homem da Meia-noite (“Midnight Man”) or they’ll join in with the town’s colorful carnival troupes such as Pitombeira dos Quatro Cantos and Elefante. Olinda has been declared a World Natural and Cultural Heritage Monument by UNESCO.
