Hot Spots: Olinda, Brazil

Olinda, located a mere 6 kilometers north of Recife’s old town, offers tourists yet another opportunity to experience Brazil’s wide array of lively culture, exciting nightlife, and first-class restaurants. Olinda is considered to be the birthplace of Brazilian culture; it is almost literally a living museum that showcases the culture and history of this amazing country. Olinda’s colonial buildings are one of the best preserved collection of Portuguese architecture that exist in Brazil which is as large as the continental United States. At Carnaval, people dance in these colonial streets as they did 150 years ago an no one knows who is who for the masks that cover everyone’s faces. It is only DNA testing that can resolve who are the parents of Carnaval babies.
