En el Centro de la ciudad, se haya La Casa de la Cultura (ver foto), que alberga todo tipo de artesanos y muestras de diferentes aspectos de la cultura brasileña, pero principalmente alberga tragicas historias de los origenes de este local, que en tiempos de la Colonia, sirvió como recinto carcelario, para un gran población penal
Parque das Esculturas de Brennand
Brennand´s Sculptures Park was inaugurated in 2000 as part of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil. The main sculpture is the Crystal Column, made of bronze and clay, with 32 meters high.
Francisco Brennand is a talented local artist, born in 1927. He is famous mainly for his work with pottery.
I had no time to visit the park, but managed to take some pictures from my catamaran tour. It seems very interesting and worth a visit. Pernambucanos are very proud of this place.
Beaches...beaches...beaches...There are excellent beaches south of Recife, with a calm sea, crystal clear waters, white sand dunes, and friendly people. The reef that protects the city runs parallel to the coast for many miles, and the entire region offers outstanding dive opportunities. Fishing villages dot this part of the coast, and these are excellent places to dine on fresh-caught seafood
Recife - in my opinion BORING
"Recife - in my opion BORING"
Recife is a city and seaport in north-eastern Brazil, capital of the state of Pernambuco, on the Atlantic Ocean, near the eastern most tip of South America. The city, one of the largest in Brazil, is divided by waterways into separate districts. Major districts include São José, a commercial and financial district on a peninsula; Boa Vista, a business and residential district on the mainland; and Santo Antônio, a governmental district on Antônio Vaz Island. Its principal industries are importing and exporting, sugar refining, cotton milling, iron working, pineapple canning, tomato preserving, and the manu facturing of cement, asbestos, paper, roofing, and leather goods. Because of its many waterways, Recife is sometimes called the Venice of America.
But - no halfway intelligent human being would take a bath in that water, because it is suage. P I S S and S H I T , rats anything is in it - SUAGE and that in the middle of the city.
All I can say is: NICE SMELL, NOT ONLY IN SUMMER, BUT ALWAYS.
