Directions to Marco Zero (Ground Zero)

A waterside monument on a broad square marks the very spot where Recife was first founded in 1537 by the Portuguese colonists. From this point, all the distances in Pernambuco are measured. 

It is a spectacular square, open, with a river running from the side, bordered by the estuary of the port of Recife, formed by the Rio Capibaribe. The estuary is protected by a natural levee, place where is the Sculpture Park with ceramic works of the artist Francisco Brennand.

Many cultural events take place in Marco Zero. In the square around the Marco, people meet for festivities (carnival, elections, soccer, etc). 

The site, with shady trees and benches, is a favorite of those who like to admire the view of the mansions of Old Recife. The square was remodeled recently and has gained a modern design.

Across the river from Marco Zero square, you can see the sculptures of Park; several boats are available to take you there.
