    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...
