Recife is an amazing city. The Marco zero is a great place to go on a Sunday afternoon. On Sunday's there is a craft show on the Bom Jesus' street and it is a very interesting thing to see and to walk around. In regular days you can visit the old port where new craft stores are now located at.... More

It's a nice place to visit. I really enjoyed the beautiful view of the ocean and park of sculptures where there is a big tower. There are some nice restaurants there and concerts.

For the past 20 years I have traveled throughout Brazil and have often felt sadly that so many historic building have been destroyed by neglect and poverty. Seeing Recife by day and night one can get a picture of a time when the Danish ruled this prosperous and lovely city.

What an amazingly beautiful city. Visited this past Summer for the first time. I have been to Recife before but first time visiting this part of the city. The old buildings are the charm of the town. It's was raining the time I went but that did not stop us from discovering treasures and taking photos of unique buildings and... More

Marco Zero is literally the place where the city of Recife started. It is beautiful, with the amazing Park of Sculptures in front. A good place to sit and enjoy the view of the river, to eat something bought from a street vendor and generally relax.

Once you are in Recife, you got to visit Marco Zero! It's a very interesting concept, and if you like skateboarding or rollerblading, it's a nice atmosphere to do some exercise. Also, it's near to several historical buildings in Recife Antigo. It's also very cheap to get to the other side of the river right in front of Marco Zero,... More

I'm so happy that this area is finally beginning to realize its potential. It's an amazing collection of historical buildings and most are still in ruins. But, the few that have been restored are just wonderful. And the area along the port has really come to life, with several nice restaurants and a terrific craft market. I'm very, very happy... More

The Zero Mark of all distances of the State of Pernambuco (Recife is your capital). The place is your star to visit old Recife on foot (use soft clothes, cap or hat and a bootle of water, because even on winter is hot). From there you go to Cultural Center of the "Caixa" (Brazilian Public Bank), center of craft and... More
