About Paco Do Frevo, Recife

Frevo: Derived from the Portuguese world ferver (to boil), Frevo refers to the wide range of music and dance styles from the Recife area – dances for the Carnival. This is such a big deal in the city, that there’s actually a museum/cultural centre for it – the Paco do Frevo. The centre focuses on activities, progress, transmission and evolution of this slice of Brazilian culture. Most of the important exhibits are on video, though there is also literature. There are regular performances, so check out the attraction website to see if you can catch one. You can’t get to know really know Recife without visiting this museum, so get your camera and be ready to take a lot of pictures.

  • Love it

  • Mt legal

  • Vale a visita, é possível conhecer a história do frevo, e no último andar o visitante é convidado a participar de uma aula básica de frevo de 15 min com um professor de dança. É bem legal. Há um cafeteira e uma lojinha de lembranças. Todos os atendentes foram educados.

  • Um lugar onde você poderá conhecer a história do frevo, com fotos dos blocos e estandartes muito interessante existe um dia de gratuidade na semana da última vez que fui era na terça feira, tem apresentações de frevo muito acolhedor para o turista fica localizado no Recife antigo.
