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.

On the 24th (Tue), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: deepen your understanding at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Nossa Senhora do Livramento Church, then see the interesting displays at Ricardo Brennand Institute, and finally kick back and relax at Boa Viagem Beach.
