Olinda, nr Recife

13 hours north of Salvador on an overnight ¨executivo¨ bus to Recife (quite comfortable in fact), then metro+bus to Olinda

Olinda was the original capital of Brazil. Best example of colonial architecture - unesco listed and being restored.

Very nice pousada, tropical garden with big pool.

Olinda is interesting hilly small place to walk around.

Praça da Se at the top - has good views of sea and Recife..
