Olinda

3.5
World heritage site · Churches · Historic Walking Areas
Displaying some of Brazil's best-preserved colonial architecture, the World Heritage-listed city of Olinda has long served as a hub for artists and bohemians. You can feel the free-spirited energy in the air, as laid-back locals experience life and appreciate the beauty of their city on the country's northeast coast. With a population of about 400,000, the mid-sized city offers a much more relaxed ambience than its close neighbor, Recife, attracting visitors who seek more classical Brazilian culture. Brimming with centuries-old churches, artisan shops, and extensive art galleries, there's no shortage of things to do in Olinda. Add Olinda and other destinations in Brazil to your travel itinerary using our Brazil trip planning site.
