City Tour Olinda And Recife Antigo

1 review
We will start with the Historic Colonial Center of Olinda where we’ll see a lovely city built with colonial houses surrounded by beautiful palm trees, the Atlantic jungle while we have the sea as a perfect background.<br><br>We’ll find out and see that streets are made out of stone throughout the Historical Center of Olinda. It has colorful houses, very captivating for its bright and happy colors. We’ll have stops at the Monastery and Basilica of São Bento which depicts its Brazilian Baroque Art. We’ll continue by visiting la Rúa do Amparo, craftsman workshops, artists along the Largo da Misericórdia and Alto da Sé. <br><br>During our next stop, we’ll get to know the famous giant dolls of Olinda, created by the renowned giant doll maker Silvio Botelho, who brings joy during the Carnival period. We will visit the neighborhood called Recife Antigo, until we reach Arsenal, the second most important square in the neighborhood, a center for crafts and old buildings.

Madre Deus Church is an old church in Old Recife, the colonial part of the city, still conserved for tourism. It´s not very big like a Cathedral, but it´s simplicity makes it very attractive.

The most beautiful church in Recife! In the process of restoration, I just think it needs to be heated. The beauty of the altar favors savings at the time of decorating for a ceremony.

Very important church from the seventeen century made with coral stones. A short not to miss visit on the way to the Marco Zero square if you are coming walking across the historic bridges;

Located in the Recife Antigo (Old Recife) neighbourhood, the Madre de Deus Church is extremely well preserved. The building dates form the XVIII century, being one of the favourite spots for weddings in town.

One of the best preserved, if not the best preserved church in old Recife. Very good decoration and religious wood work. Located in the center of Recife, very central in town, of easy access and near other main attractions in the city.
