Being that Halloween and Dia dos Afinados just passed, I thought I’d share a post (in Portuguese) about haunted places in Recife. It’s a long one (several pages) and I saved it in PDF format which you can download here (Recife Assombrado). As for where these tales came from, I found it blogged about on Tumblr, but my best guess as to the source is that it might be from this site (in PT) dedicated to the topic at hand, haunted Recife.
Below, is one tale of a haunted square where ghostly babies are said to be heard crying.
Here’s a site (PT) with a few urban legends from Recife.
