Rua da Aurora
Recife, Pernambuco 50060-010
Rua da Aurora is a street that is mainly on the left bank of the Capibaribe River. Its name, meaning "break of dawn," comes from the fact that all of its houses are east-facing, with a view of the sunrise. This street is a common picture on Recife postcards due to its beauty. Here you will find many houses where famous local families lived, various neoclassical buildings including the former home of the President of Pernambuco Province, the Parliament of Pernambuco and Ginásio Pernambucano, a traditional school founded in 1825.
