Olinda

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Olinda, a colonial city, is full of calm little streets. The Franciscan convent of São Francisco has a church and a chapel, and features 'azulejo' tile pictures depicting scenes from the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. The praça da Sé, and its view over the coast, are a veritable feast for the eyes. In the evening and at weekends, the inhabitants tend to get together on this square for a drink and a bite to eat, and to listen to music.
