Olinda

Overview

Introduction

Olinda has some of the best-preserved colonial buildings in Brazil (UNESCO has declared it a "monument to humanity") with some stunning examples of baroque Portuguese architecture. The best way to see Olinda is on foot. Stroll along its 16th- and 17th-century cobblestoned streets past colonial houses, shops, churches and markets. Many bohemians and artists live and work there, and the town holds major annual festivals—the best known being the loud and frenetic Carnival, with splendid costumes that make it by far the most colorful Carnival in Brazil. Olinda is only a 20-minute car ride from Recife.
