Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Recife: Porto de Galinhas (Projeto Hippocampus, Pontal de Maracaipe, &more) and Praia dos Carneiros (in Tamandare). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Ricardo Brennand Institute, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Capela Dourada, gain insight at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and make a trip to Praca do Marco Zero.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Recife day trip app.
