Very educational and great guide. Would have willingly paid for the tour

Put near the top of your list of any walk around Recife Antigo.

We were given a leaflet about this beautiful building - the palace of the Governor of the State of Pernambuco - when we popped past one day and planned to return to take one of the many free guided tours that are run.

Our family group contained a foreign tourist - me - but also people who have lived in Recife all their lives, and all were really impressed with what they saw.

The building is beautiful inside and the guide was really friendly and patient with people's questions.

The tour is free and there is no need to book. Just be aware that it is a working building, so if you go during the week, you aren't allowed to wear things like shorts or flip flops. Tours also run on Sundays, when this dress code is not enforced.

Alert your guide in advance if you are a foreigner: many have good language skills. I didn't and was ok with the Portuguese, but our lovely guide said she would have been only too willing to translate things for me.

The park in front is worth a short stop

The yellow Palacio itself does not really have a big added value but the park juist in front is worth to stop for a few minutes mainly because you can take some nice photos here of the fountain, the old baobab and the buildings in the background.
