Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes, Olinda

4.1
#1 of 11 in Museums in Olinda
At Carnival an army of giant Olinda heads parade the city streets. Each head portrays a celebrity icon, a famous politician, or a fictional character from a film or book. No matter the subject matter, it is a fantastically silly spectacle that's a cultural phenomenon specific to Brazil. Lucky for you, Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes is open all year long. There you can view past heads and even try on a few for size. The outlandish expressions on the head's faces are sure to bring a smile to yours as you pose for photo after photo between the gigantic craniums.
