Olinda Highly Recommended Highly Recommended Highly Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


A few miles north of Recife lies Olinda, a splendid city founded by the Portuguese in the first half of the 16C. Its architectural and cultural wealth sets it apart and it has been made a UNESCO World Heritage City. One could wander endlessly around its famous "seven hills", following its steep little streets at random, and taking in the splendours of this timeless city. The green of the vegetation, the blue of the ocean and the white of the churches and convents form a seamlessly harmonious whole.
