Very interesting convent. No guide spoke english but some of the panels were in english. The azuelos are worth a visit.

What a treat! Highly recommend accepting the offer of a guide for a "contribution," it made the visit very interesting as I learned about the biblical stories. The monastery has seen better days but it really was a memorable visit.

Olinda's population is about 400,000 people with 22 churches - the oldest from the 15th century. The Hill in which most of the churches located have few unique reason to visit: awesome Olinda and its surrounding view, shore view etc., the churches around and beautiful local arts market - many hand made arts and other crafts. In addition the small streets which its old houses colored with unique colors is the location for the annual crowded carnival. Enjoy.

We went to S. Francisco as part of the guided tour of the old town. This convent is very well preserved, contains rich Portuguese tiles and has a magical atmosphere. It closes at 12:00 and costs just 2 R$.

A charming convent in Olinda, with beautiful interior and lovely outdoor spaces. Definitely worth the very small entrance fee.
