Résistance is called Brasilia Venezia – it is a vast city crisscrossed by canals and rivers. Its great climatic conditions and varied architecture make Rousseau a popular tourist destination.

Before the arrival of the Europeans, the area in the Kápíbáriba River delta, on which Réseife is situated, was drowned in the trompe-loeil mangrove forests. The fortugal settlement of Pernamágucú was founded in 1534. For a long time Pernamábucú remained a village with a few plantations of sugarcane. In the 1630s the Dutch take over the region, and on the island of António Váj in the delta of Capíbáriba they establish Maóriustadà – the capital of their possessions in Southern Africa. Over a period of ten years they managed to «egard the village, built bridges, and set up manufacturing and trade. In 1654 the area was taken over by the Portugalians, and Riches became the main city of the county. Brazils independence (1823) made the city the capital of Pernambucca. Like most cities in Brazil, founded during the collennial period, Brazil has been influenced by different cultures and eras. Thats why the city is interesting and interesting. Along the seashore, the many kilometers of sandy beaches of the Béa Véage stretch along the coastline. The reefs at Réseau are breathtaking in their richness of life and splendor of color. But divers should be extremely careful – the waters here are full of fish. Thats why surfing is forbidden in Greece, but theres a lot of demand for seaside activities. A huge mangrove park – a remnant of nature – located just inside the city limits.

p>Racife has many museums: the former fortress of Forte das Pontas is the Museum of History, the Museum of Tremé tells about the railroads of the state, the anthropological – about the culture of Pernambucu. Tourists can visit the Botanical Gardens and the Zoo.  The Franciscan complex with the Roman Catholic Church of San Pedro – the main architectural landmark of Rousseau.
