Recife is the 4th largest city in Brazil and one of the most historic ocean cities of the country. It has the distinction of not having been established by the Portuguese. Actually, it was the Dutch Prince Maurice of Nassau who established Recife on reclaimed land in 1637 after his troops had burned the original capital Olinda. Recife is an exotic fusion of modern and ancient, threaded by the rivers Pina, Capibaribe and Beberibe, Canal Tacaruna and edged by scenic Boa Viagem beachfront.
Though much of the city centre is given over to office buildings and modern skyscrapers, there are still some quiet squares with a number of lovely public buildings and impressive churches, as well as several museums. The best buildings of interest include the churches of Santo Antonio do convento de Sao Francisco (built in 1606), Capela Dourada (built in 1697), Sao Pedro dos Clerigos (built in 1782), Nossa Senhora da Conceicao do Militares, and lots of others. Don't miss Forte do Brum (1629) and Forte das Cinco Pontas (1630), both created by the Dutch.
Highlights: Churches, Olinda World Heritage town
