What you can expect

Traditional earthenware sculptures and rope- and leather-crafted creations are the natural treasures of Pernambuco’s Agreste Highlands. These crafts have been a part of local customs for many years.

The regional market town of Caruaru, 81 miles (130 km) inland from Recife, has been recognized by UNESCO as the largest center for figure sculpture in the Americas. The craft market is certainly an unforgettable highlight of the tour. These clay figures, a legacy of the great folk artist Mestre Vitalino, make unique souvenirs to take home from your trip.

After Caruaru, visit Nova Jerusalem, considered the world’s largest open-air theater, where Passion of the Christ is performed every year during the week of Easter. Have lunch at Pousada da Paixão, a lodge inside the theater. The itinerary is not available during the week of Easter.
