Rua do Bom Jesus


Rua do Bom Jesus directions
The street and this whole island are the oldest part of Recife, founded not by the Portuguese but by the Dutch. The reconstructed Kahal Zur Synagogue, rebuilt on the foundations of the first synagogue in the Americas, is worth a visit. On weekends this part of the city is a fun area to visit for free outdoor concerts.

The center of the nocturnal activity is the Praça Artur Oscar. At the north end of the square the tall thing like a Norman castle is the Malakoff Tower, a former astrological observatory now open as a public viewing platform.
