Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Madre Deus Church and Ponta de Pedras Beach. Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes and Paco do Frevo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Recife's surroundings by going to Ilha de Santo Aleixo (in Sirinhaem), Porto de Galinhas (Praia De Maracaipe, Muro Alto Beach, & more) and Olinda (Church and Monastery of Sao Bento & Se Cathedral). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Pernambuco House of Culture, examine the collection at Museu Cais do Sertao, enjoy the sand and surf at Paiva Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Praia de Calhetas.
