Visiting Recife, you cannot miss its newest attraction, the modern and beautiful "Museu Cais do Sertão"! At a walking distance from "Praça do Marco Zero", at the "Recife Antigo" quarter, it honors the culture, traditions and history of the "sertanejos". These men, women and children - the so called "sertanejos" - living in the remotest areas of the region (the "sertão"), facing long dry seasons and adverse conditions, bravely resist. "Museu Cais do Sertão", through its museography project, brings freshness and modernity to Recife. A visit to this museum will certainly help the understanding of the Brazilian Northeastern region and its people. Unmissable! Enjoy!…

This museum was opened in 2014 and is part of the old harbour rejuvenation project. It boasts many interactive displays and makes the recent history of the Sertao, an area sadly underrepresented in the Brazilian mindset, come alive. Well worth a visit.
