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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Praia de Tambaba (in Conde), Praia Bela (in Pitimbu) and Olinda (Caixa d'Agua Alto da Se / Elevador Panoramico, Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes, & more). Next up on the itinerary: see the interesting displays at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, enjoy the sand and surf at Boa Viagem Beach, deepen your understanding at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and get engrossed in the history at Museu da Cidade do Recife - Forte das Cinco Pontas.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Recife fast, fun, and easy.
