Overview of your Olinda tour:

The special thing about Olinda Historic Center is its vibe. The colors, the shapes, its hidden treasures. Just wander around the old cobblestone streets, without a fixed destination, can be an interesting experience. But there are many stories to be told and places to appreciate, therefore I'll conduct this walking tour in order to immerse the visitors in this vibrant and pleasant journey. Olinda was founded in 1535 by the Portuguese. It makes it one of the oldest cities on the American continent. I will introduce you to the wealth of the sugarcane reflected in rich and magnificent churches, an old slaves' market, routes of Carnaval parades and many other things we can only find in places like Olinda. Originally Olinda was a center of the sugarcane industry and this is why its historic area became World Heritage by UNESCO in 1982. Nowadays is known as an artists' colony, with many galleries, workshops and museums. And this is the place where we'll walk around and get to know.

Your Olinda tour itinerary

We will take a car and go directly to Olinda's World Heritage Historic Center. - Carmo Square and the Church of Our Lady Of Mount Carmel of Olinda, Brazil's first Carmelite Order church; - Franciscan Convent, - The Sé Cathedral (Church of Our Lord Savior of the World), where is located the most beautiful view of both Recife and Olinda cities. - Art shops of Alto da Sé. There are many nice shops to vist if the group is interested. - Mercy's Slope and the Four Corners of Olinda, one of the most famous corridors of Olinda's Carnaval parades. - Ribeira Market, an ols slaves' market; - Saint Benedict's Monastery and its exquisite baroque Main Altar that was exibited at the NYC Guggenheim Museum in 2001. But actually the itinerary can be changed at all times, depending on what you prefer to do and where you prefer to go. NOTE: on Mondays some museums and cultural centers may not be open for visitation.
