Fodor's Review

Most of Old Recife's colonial-era public buildings and houses have been restored. The area between Rua do Bom Jesus and Rua do Apolo is full of shops, cafés, and bars, making it the hub of downtown life both day and night; on weekends there's live maracatu music and dancing, and a handicrafts fair is held every Sunday from 2 to 8 on Rua do Bom Jesus.
