Olinda

 was founded by the Portuguese in 1535. According to the legend, when they saw a beautiful valley, they exclaimed: "Oh, linda!" ("Oh, what a beauty!"). So the name has remained.
The Old Town of Olinda was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1982.
Cathedral of Olinda and

Recife

is the Church of Saint Saviour of the World (what a beautiful name!).
