Join us and find out what all the excitement is about. Begin the tour with a panorama of Recife, passing by the three sectors that compose the city centre: Recife, Santo Antonio and Boa Vista. See the stunning bridge of Mauricio de Nassau and the Praca da Republica, a marvellous square flanked by the Santa Isabel Theatre, the Law Courts and the Governor’s Palace, a clashing combination of politics and culture. After that, take a walk over to the Casa da Cultura, an elegant construction dating back to the 19th century. This safe haven for local culture was originally used as a prison, back in the days of its erection. Now, it’s full of craft stores and traditional restaurants. Move on later to Olinda, where you’ll see the churches of Se and Misericordia upon the Alto da Se. From this vantage point, admire the breath-taking views of both cities, sitting side by side. During the infamous Brazilian Carnival, this is the best spot to see the streets fill with colour and fantasy, as parade after wild parade, such as Pitombeira dos Quatro Cantos or Elefante, march alongside giant puppets of the likes of the renowned Midnight Man.
