    Recife Things to Do

    A strong effort is being made in Recife's historical area, recuperating its most beautiful buildings. Before leaving Portugal, a friend told me that he didn't like Recife, because it was old, degraded, and dirty. But everything has a negative and a positive side: those old and degraded buildings they kept, are now the base of the good work that is...

    Recife Things to Do

    We stayed at Boa Viagem, and took there most of our swims. The beach is long but not spectacular. The long reef along the coast protects from surf and sharks, but risks to make the bath very monotonous, specially in low tide, when it becomes almost a pool. People throws everything to the sand, but the local authorities make a good effort to clean...

    Recife Things to Do

    It is not Recife, but it so close and so connected, that it would be a "crime" if I skip this information. Olinda deserves its own page, and you just need to follow the link.

    A good option to visit Recife is to take a boat tour along Capibaribe river. "Catamaran Tours" offers a few options of tours.

  • Pottery Brennand

    Recife Things to Do

    Most of the best work of Brennand is exposed in the garden. Clearly obsessed by erotic shapes, there's a touch of Dali in some of the "crazy" compositions. The Taj Mahal is the central volume, and the fountains and walls frame it very well.

    Recife Things to Do

    The main building houses a collection of art, focused in the influence of Netherlands in Brazil. It's a rich and beautiful collection, but for someone who knows what Portugal meant to the history and art of Brazil, it gives the idea that the Portuguese-Dutch conflict subsists. Some of my friends who had been there before, alerted me that the...

  • Porto de Galinhas

    Recife Things to Do

    Near to Recife is Porto de Galinhas, a resort-town. Porto de Galinhas means Port of Chickens in Portuguese. Why chickens? Well, back in the 1880s, after slavery was banned, the bad bad plantation owners of this region still imported Africans from West Africa. But of course, they could not go out right and call them 'slaves' now. They used a...

    Recife Things to Do

    An old detention house, closed in 1973, was transformed under Brennand's supervision, in a shopping mall. The architecture was preserved, and the cells were occupied by dozens or small shops, selling local crafts. Even where interior walls were removed, to allow a little bigger shops, the look was maintained, only two lifts give a dispensable sign...
