No need to go crazy about not missing this and that in Recife. Quite the contrary, take a walk while downtown and wherever your feet take you there may be something worth a second look, unless you're a serious scholar on Brazilian colonial history, obviously.

Worth the visit. Great location. Interesting design. One gets a peaceful, calming feeling even though surrounded by often lively Brazilian nightlife in the surrounding square.
