General Info on Recife
Today, Recife is the fourth-largest urban area in Brazil covering almost 213 square kilometers. Initially, it was a small fishing village before the Portuguese colonized Brazil and founded it in 1537. Afterward, there was a twist of fate where the Dutch from New Holland made strides in their quest for dominance in the European front by challenging Portugal and eventually colonizing the region courtesy of the Dutch West India Company in the 17th Century. Since Recife has a harbor (the Captaincy of Pernambuco) which was vital for the Dutch company's trades, it became the capital of Dutch Brazil. Furthermore, another impressive and rare feature is that it became a capital, located at the confluence (where two rivers meet) of Capibaribe and Beberibe rivers which flow into the South Atlantic Ocean. It is a factor that made it easier for boats ferrying resources from the in-land to arrive at the capital before leading the precious commodities for Europe. Since some of the city's highlights are scattered around this vast region (216 square-kilometers) it is advisable to opt for a rental car in Recife
