A city of rivers and bridges, Recife has been hailed as the "Venice of Brazil." With its emerald-green tropical waters, sun-drenched beaches, and coral reefs, the city has long been a popular vacation escape for Brazilians. Recife is also Brazil's fifth-largest city with a population of over 1.5 million people. It's a charming mixture of a modern metropolis, an historic settlement, and a tropical beach resort.
Boa Viagam Beach
Recife means reef and this city's most famous beach offers white sand, emerald waters, and a reef teeming with tiny creatures in the tide pools at low tide.
Founded in 1534, Brazil's old colonial capital was declared a World Historical Monument by UNESCO and features beautifully preserved 16th- and 17th-century buildings.
The historic chapel is one of the most beautiful and important churches in all Brazil.
