Photographer's Note

Start Here a series of photos of beaches in Pernambuco as this one is the beach Cupe, and others like Muro Alto, Carneiros and other related issues in the region. Porto de Galinhas is the focus of all these tourist attractions littoral. Interesting to know a historical point about the place. There was a period just before the libertation of slaves that the traffic was prohibited. To circumvent the authorities, the traffickers used the argument that trading would be "chickens" in that place. In fact all this was a code for illegal buyers to warn them about the coming of a new slave ship anchored in place. So the name was established as Porto de Galinhas.
