" Nothing is more representative of the spirit of the people from Olinda than walking up and down its hills in Olinda's historic site. Passing through its narrow streets, visiting its churches, appreciating its colonial houses. This is the best way to go back into Pernambuco's historical past. The first Brazilian School of Law was founded over there, as well as many monasteries, convents, and other schools. The town has also witnessed many battles, like the Traders War and the Duth Invasion. The colonial houses, that for such a long time sheltered revolutionary leaders, are today the home of many artists, the truly constructors of current Olinda, which is considered by Unesco a Historic and Cultural Patrimony of Mankind. Among other artists who have chosen Olinda as their homeplace, are the musicians, who help the town to become a huge party during Carnival."
