Recife Antigo is a place to discover. The heart of the old city has numerous bridges, narrow streets with old and somehow mysterious buildings waiting for you to find them. There are a lot of churches and cultural centers, but the local touristic information is very poor, so my advise is to make a good research before getting there (better if listening to Nação Zumbi), so you can know where's the best city street market, where to listen and watch to an amazing maracatu presentation and other cultural happenings. The people are so lovable and helpful, but always be careful of the ones with bad intentions, specially when it's deserted. Enjoy Recife, the mangrove city :)
