Engenho Poço Comprido


Farm hotels - Agritourism

The Engenho Poço Comprido  no longer features traces of the Senzala (slave quarters), but the surrounding green area has been preserved, along with the main house, chapel and nearby facilities.

Within the municipal boundaries of Vicência, the architectural style of the buildings has warranted unremitting preservation efforts, with consecutive actions since 1999 to help conserve this national tresure.

Poço Comprido is located in the forested zone in Pernambuco, 94 km from Recife. When Brazil was firt settled by europeans, this region belonged to the 'capitania of Itamaracá', a state-like area granted by the Portuguese Crown. At the end of the 17th century, it was annexed to the 'Capitania of Pernambuco'.

Within the 4 hectares (10 acres) of the sugar mill plantation, historic and educational tourism has gained an infrastructure to assst in increasing understanding by visitors and tourists concerning the sugar cane epoch, with its unique lifestyle and culture.
