Was taken here by the tour guide. We drove across the causeway to the park which is very narrow and it is interesting to encounter vehicles going the other direction. The park is filled with sculptures by Francisco Brennand to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil in 2000. The sculptures are "interesting" and involve or resemble various...

The sculpture parc can be viewed from Recife Antigo waterfront eastward. In order to get to the park you need to cross the water and best to take a combined ticket that takes you to the sculpture park as well as provides you a tour around the canals of Recife, showing you the 'Victorian' houses and ancestry of Pernambuco.

A great introduction to Brennard's epic museum to himself. The clay statues are incredible and worth taking a small boat over to get a closer look.

Ok, yes, the sculptures are wonderful and the perspective you get of both the ocean to the east and the city to the west is fantastic. Loved, loved, loved this. HOWEVER, driving back from here, on the causeway that connects to Brasilia Temosa, we had to suddenly stop the car because several teenaged boys jumped out from behind the rocks.... More

So, this park of sculptures by Francisco Brennand is interesting; the big one called the crystal column is a huge replica of a cactus flower (Francisco may deny it but look at it closely and look at the plant; you will know where he got his inspiration). Rest of the sculptures are just ok.. but still good to take a... More

Everywhere in Recife you can find along the streets and the squares and on modernist buildings of the last 4 decades, monumental art works created by Francisco Brennand. (*) To me, art in a museum is interesting and comfortable but somehow clean and artificial. Art in the public domain is much more relevant and challenging. Art in the streets is... More

Go and see one of the best sights of Recife, but do not expect anything but this, cause the sculptures aren't in the best shape, instead, go to the "Casa de Banhos", a very popular Bar in Recife near the Park, and get a really cold boose while you are enjoying the beautiful end of the afternoon in Recife, Many...
