We didn't quite know what to expect but as it was a rainy day, we thought we would give it a whirl and see what it was all about. WOW!! Wouldn't have missed it for the world. I want some of these sculptures for my garden. If you like art and can look beyond the routine, you will get a... More

The Brennand institute is a sort of temple created by one of Brasil's greatest ceramic artists. It is a great indoor/outdoor space that combines his ceramic work with nature in a very surreal way that compliments the environment very fittingly. It feels like walking into abandoned ruins, however it is the consummation of the life's work of one man and... More

It's a bit far from the center of Recife but it is totally worth a visit. There are nice sculptures all over the gardens. The ambient is very calm and peaceful. The restaurant is very good, try the greensalad and a mixed juice!

Very interesting and worth the trip. It is a litlle bit far from downtown but you must go there. A nice landscape with pottery art. Brennand is an international artist.

Gorgeous parklike setting, very interesting sculptures, as well as paintings. The gardens are beautiful and there's a nice cafe to have lunch. A great days outing.

An outdoor art gallery with sculptures in the garden. Sort of on the outskirts of Recife, but worth the visit. The on site restaurant was also good.

Unique place that has a lot of pieces of art in ceramic. The sinergy of the place is amazing and Brennand is an artist that used to be friend of Picasso. indescribable

The place is difficult to find but you'll be rewarded many times if you love arts..It was a revelation to me as I didn't expect to find anything new in the world of ceramics..But instead I was thrilled to enter the world of an artist with a sensitive soul and open mind...Magnificent, impressive, his imaginary creations touch your heart, reach...

A very elaborate display of modern art and ceramics by a world renowned Brazilian artist. May not be everyones taste, but the display and grounds are MOST impressive and worth a visit. Take the opportunity to have lunch or a snack at the on-site eatery - VERY good food and service.

This place at Recife is one of the most amazing I've been. It's an art gallery mixed with a park, with lots of art pieces from Brennand, a ceramist from Recife. Different, sometimes weird sculptures and small temples populate the place, where you can spend an afternoon of freash air and art. Also, there is the factory of Brennand tiles... More
