Highlights of Recife
Recife is the capital of the state of Pernambuco. Located in the north eastern part of Brazil. With a population of over 1,650,000 it is also the largest city in Pernambuco.
The origins of Recife come from the Portuguese invaders in 1537. Interestingly Recife got its name from the stone reefs around the many islands it covers. Also these many islands are interconnected by bridges. Hence Recife goes by the nickname of “Brazilian Venice“.
The importance of Recife as a port grew over the years. Moreover with major production of sugar cane in the region, sugar exports helped it to become an influential trading port.
To grow the area, the authorities offered fiscal incentives in the 1970’s and 1980’s, As a result Recife became a major industrial zone. So much so that Recife became the largest industrial area in the North/North East. Not only in sugar cane and its derivatives such as ethanol, but also in the manufacture of ships and cars. Consequently other supply industries emerged. Amongst them include electronics, engineering and software development.
In addition to being a commercial hub, Recife also became a medical hub. Second only to Sao Paulo. With a combination of ample manpower along with private investment, the medical industry grewin size and fame. Indeed the modern hospitals have state-of-the-art equipment, thereby enabling them to offer the best attention medical care possible.
Recife is a major tourist destination. Firstly it has a marvellous beach. A paradise for sand and sun worshippers. The beach Porto de Galinhas located 60 kms south of Recife has repeatedly won the title of best beach in Brazil award. Secondly its history is a major attraction. Its historical sites go back to the times of the Portuguese occupation. Interrupted only briefly by the Dutch.
For example don’t miss going to the old quarter of Recife, “Recife Antigo”. Here you will find Madre de Deus (Mother of God) Church, as well as remnants of its Jewish past. See the Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue. The first synagogue in the Americas. You also have the Military Museum. However it is fun to find its Marco Zero, the founding spot of the city from which other places radiate.
Another place not to miss is Olinda. Located 7 kms north of the city it is of historical importance. So much so that UNESCO awarded it the title of a World Heritage Site in 1982.
An Educational Hub
Apart from being both a commercial and medical hub, Recife is also famous for education. It is home to the Federal University of Pernambuco. Moreover it is the largest university in the state of Pernambuco. Many historical people of importance have attended the university. Including the Brazilian poet and abolitionist Castro Alves.
