Recife— 7 nights
Sun, Mar 1 - Sun, Mar 8
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.Museum-lovers will appreciate Ricardo Brennand Institute and Fundacao Gilberto Freyre. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Recife Antigo and Capela Dourada. Venture out of the city with trips to Porto de Galinhas (Museu das Tartarugas - ONG Ecoassociados, Scuba & Snorkeling, &more), Olinda (Church and Monastery of Sao Bento & Se Cathedral) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). There's much more to do: examine the collection at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, appreciate the extensive heritage of Praca do Arsenal, admire the architecture and history at Memorial Frei Damiao de Bozano, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Convento de Sao Francisco.
