25 reviews
The origin of the name Maragogi is of the old Tupi that means "river of the cats of the bush", was chosen that name due to the river that bathes the municipality. The municipality of Maragogi is located in the state of Alagoas, in the state of Maceió.<br><br>One of the main tourist attractions in the state, the tourist attractions that attract most in Maragogi are the beaches of Peroba, São Bento, Barra Grande and Burgalhau. Beaches of natural pools, calm sea, white sands and reefs where it is possible to bathe next to colorful fish.<br><br>Another strong point in Maragogi is its rural tourism in the farms Cachoeira and Marrecas.

Visiting Recife, you cannot miss its newest attraction, the modern and beautiful "Museu Cais do Sertão"! At a walking distance from "Praça do Marco Zero", at the "Recife Antigo" quarter, it honors the culture, traditions and history of the "sertanejos". These men, women and children - the so called "sertanejos" - living in the remotest areas of the region (the "sertão"), facing long dry seasons and adverse conditions, bravely resist. "Museu Cais do Sertão", through its museography project, brings freshness and modernity to Recife. A visit to this museum will certainly help the understanding of the Brazilian Northeastern region and its people. Unmissable! Enjoy!

This museum was opened in 2014 and is part of the old harbour rejuvenation project. It boasts many interactive displays and makes the recent history of the Sertao, an area sadly underrepresented in the Brazilian mindset, come alive. Well worth a visit.
