Colonial buildings, exhibitions houses, handcraft market, sea, the view of the sea from here is just breath taking. During carnival that is the place where the action happens and also the major concerts, demonstrations... All... More

A artisanal center is placed just beside it. On the other side of the water front is located a... More

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.
