Recife Council Chamber


I just saw an episode of TV Câmara do Recife (basically, Recife Council Chamber TV) on Youtube and found it to be quite good for getting a audio-visual representation of what’s published in Recife’s newspapers. I’m not sure if all episodes are like this, but today’s episode was on a city gov’t meeting regarding the new Carnival rules and on the new frevo museum (I left out part 2, which just talks about eating healthy).

Situated in Boa Viagem, the Council Chamber of Recife, aka Casa do José Mariano, was founded in 1710 and is one of the oldest in Brazil. Here’s the official site (PT).
