What To Expect
Traditional earthenware sculptures and creations of rope and leather are part of the attractions and beauty of Pernambuco's Agreste Highlands. These crafts have been a part of local customs for many years.
The regional market town of Caruaru, 130 km inland from Recife, has been recognized by UNESCO as the largest centre for figure sculpture in the Americas. The craft market is certainly an unforgettable highlight of the tour. These clay figures, a legacy of the great folk artist Mestre Vitalino, make for unique souvenirs of your trip.
After Caruaru, we'll visit Nova Jerusalem, the world's largest open-air theater, where Christ's Passion is performed every year during Easter Week. Lunch will be served at Pousada da Paixao, a lodge inside the theater.*
