Amazingly located in one of the last preservated woods in the Recife area, property of one of the most powerful land owning family in the state of Pernambuco, this ceramic factory is the work-in-progress lifetime project of an exceptional artist. You will have probably seen his art around town, at the port, at the airport, without realising it all came... More

The place is full of different types of ceramic works from the artist F. Brennand, the place is little mystical and you can spend hours looking at the beautiful pieces.

Unbelievable! A musuem build to display a lifetime of his own work. Incredible visceral experience so take enough time to take it all in. The sculpture, pottery, tiles, paintings are almost obsessive but you've never seen anything like it. It's extrude art and difficult to explain. Just go!

This was one of the highlights to my visit to Recife, At every corner there is something amazing to look at. The atmosphere is so casual and non-stuffy. It was like being in a surreal world! Truly a pleasure!

It's one of the best place to see for artistic trip in Recife. Instaliations are very succesful. It is little bit far from the city. I took the cab to go there but i could not find any cab there to back to city. So i walked to the city nearly 3 km. It takes to half of the day... More

if in Recife, this is a must see. Francisco Brennand sculptures and craftwork are interesting and not traditional.
