Walking around Recife Antigo is one of the best thing to do if you want to visit places that show the meaning of the city. The district is full of museums, gallery arts, vintage architecture, bars, coffee shops and everything affordable. I strongly recommend.

Basilica and Convent of Nossa Senhora do Carmo

Reviewed By LuizDutraNeto - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The Carmelites priests started the construction their church in 1696, being it inaugurated only in 1767. It honors Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Holy Patroness of Recife. The church was built in the baroque architectural style and is one of the most beautiful churches in Northeastern Brazil. It was totally restored and reinaugurated in 2001, with the enhancement of its great paintings, ceilings, images and gilt carving finishes. Nevertheless, due to the city's high humidity level, it again needs some renovation efforts. As it is downtown, in the Santo Antônio Quarter, check the Basilica opening hours before going and use taxis at all times, principally if you are visiting it alone. Enjoy!
