Olinda

Located 30km from Recife, Olinda is famous for its immaculate preservation of its ornate churches ans colonial architecture. It is one of the best preserved colonial cities in Brazil and the second to be declared a Historical and Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the United Nations in 1982.

It was once the original capital of Pernambuco, founded in 1535. Sacked and burnt with all its Catholic churches by the Calvinist Dutch in 1631, it was rebuilt but lost its ascendancy to Recife in the 18th century. After the return of the Portuguese the city has lived an outstanding growth period sustained by the sugar production and commerce.

Besides its culture, Olinda has one of the most picturesque Carnival in the country. Giant puppets and frevo dancing all over the streets are some of the traditional attractions that enchant visitors.
