Next, travel towards Olinda, the old capital perched on hills only 4 miles north of Recife. Olinda has been preserved by UNESCO as a Historical and Cultural Heritage of Humanity, and the town boasts impressive scenic views and dozens of century-old churches amid colonial houses. Travel uphill to admire the landscape and feel the grandeur of this city's rich historic past, and take a short stroll to see artisans at work or purchase some of their items on display. Visit the church of Our Lady of Mercy, a magnificent sample of baroque art, and then check out the Cathedral of the Sea. The backyard has some amazing panoramic views of Olinda and adjoining Recife.
Now pay a visit to the Golden Chapel. Built between 1696 and 1724, it is the expression of the baroque sacred art of Pernambuco and presents one of the most beautiful sets of Portuguese cuts in Brazil. The whole lining is covered with paintings framed with the sophisticated golden cuts and outlined with jacaranda grating.
