    What to Expect
    Know some of the places visited on Recife & Olinda Tour!  Boa Viagem Beach: is about 7 km and is located in the center of the urban area of Recife. The low tide forms several shallow natural pools with warm and transparent waters. In addition, it has an excellent infrastructure with kiosks, bike path, jogging track, showers, volleyball and tennis courts.

    House of Culture: the building belonged to the old detention house of Recife, which was deactivated in 1973. Three years later, plastic artist Francisco Brennand and architect Lina Bo Bardi restored the place and transformed it into what it is today. Recalling that the construction of the place is dated to 1850.

    House of the Giant Dolls: We talk in Olinda that you will surely remember: the giant dolls, symbolic figures of the Pernambuco carnival. In this place you can see more than 60 dolls made in honor of characters like Alceu Valença, Michael Jackson, Chacrinha, Ayrton Senna, Rita Lee, Lampião, Tim Maia, Silvio Santos, Pope Francisco, among others.

    Alto da Sé: Among the attractions of Alto da Sé is the beautiful sunset and the Duomo Church, built in the seventeenth century in Baroque architecture. Moreover, it is possible to see the craft market.

    It is not the same any more
    Almost all shops are closed, few points still open (i think around 5 shops and restaurants). Not worth visiting.
