This was a reasonably priced attraction - the cost has gone up a bit though, we paid 8 Brazilian Real for each of us - but well worth it. The view is great. Highly recommend the stop if you are walking the streets of Olinda.

We went up to check the views and they are really nice. Not so different from what you see from the other (free) "mirantes", but since it's cheap (less 2 dollars per person), we went for it.

This is a nice place to go at the end of the day to see the city and relax. There is a friendly little market where you can buy cold drinks including caipirinhas and snack on some tapioca sandwiches and other local favorites. Around this...More

Worth the 5 Reals to get the best panoramic view. Really the only way to see the natural area. Helps get an overview of the city and see all the colors of the ocean.

Really great views high above over everything - offers great panaromic 360 views. Don't miss this - really worth it for some great photographs the views offer.

5 reais gets you to the top using the staffed lift. The view from up top is fantastic and the panoramic pictures one can shoot are just amazing.

Stunning views, just about the best vantage point in the whole of Olibda, to miss it would be an absolute shame There is a lift so no worries there!

We thought this was just a water tower but its also a viewing tower and it was free. There is a staffed elevator to get to the top where the views are fantastic. I don't know the opening hours sorry
