The NIce Face of Pernambuco

linda is just 6kms north of Recife, and I would say that is inside the same city, but any way they would never say they live in Recife, as they have a special rivality, because when the Dutch invaded Pernambuco, olinda was the most important city and recife where just suburbs, and They burnt down the city and gave inportance to recife. Thanks to that Recife is morre pro duch and Olinda more pro portuguesse.

It is a tiny town full of trees and little colonial houses and lots of churches and ppeople ready to guide you around.
