Olinda

Olinda is a feast for our eyes. And while we are at it, for the rest of our senses as well. Located near Recife, in Pernambuco, Brasil, this perfect former portuguese colonial town is as much portuguese as it is brazilian. The portuguese breath-taking architecure and the brazilian "tropicalidade" present in every corner, while we are walking along the cobblestone roads, makes us wish that the time spent there never ends. A mix of Europe and the Americas, of the old and the new worlds, Olinda is the living past in a country with a bright future.
And the colours!
Oh, the colours...
