On this guided tour admire the renowned Casa da Cultura and Praça da República in Recife and see the sights of Olinda such as Alto da Sé and Sao Bento Monastery. Enjoy roundtrip transportation with hotel pickup from Porto Galinhas and Recife.

The tour begins with a view of Recife that spans the 3 districts that make up the city center—Recife, Santo Antônio and Boa Vista. See the bridge of Maurício de Nassau, Praça da República—flanked by the Governor’s Palace, Santa Isabel Theatre, and the Law Courts—as well as the Casa da Cultura, a building dating back to the 19th century. Originally a prison, it is now a center for regional culture with craft stores and local delicacies.

In the UNESCO-listed historic center of Olinda, visit Alto da Sé, where you can see the churches of Sé and Misericórdia along with a breathtaking view of the twin cities, Olinda and Recife. During Carnival joyful revelers parade down the streets, following traditional giant puppets like the Homem da Meia-noite (Midnight Man), or joining colorful troupes such as Pitombeira dos Quatro Cantos and Elefante.
