8/28.- Olinda, view from Alto da Se


The area of Olinda was inhabited by indigenous tribes for thousands of years before the first European came. The first colonialists to arrive were the French, but the first to build a settlement were the Portuguese, in 1535. After being burnt down by the Dutch invaders, the neighboring city of Recife was founded.

Walking uphill from here we will get to the Church of Misericórdia.
