Praca da Republica, Belem
(3.7/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
You get a true sense of Belém’s history when you visit Praca da Republica. The beautiful neoclassical Theatro da Paz, epitomizing the golden age of the rubber trade, is considered one of the 14 most beautiful jewels of Brazilian patrimony. The European-inspired architecture of the Theatro Experimental Waldemar Henrique and the Art School of the Federal University of Pará provide you with Amazonian culture both past and present. At the center of Praca da Republica stands a 20 m (66 ft) tall Carrara marble monument commemorating the proclamation of the republic in Brazil. The Sunday morning craft market attracts crowds of locals, but during the week Praca da Republica is less busy. Within its confines, you feel far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city and can laze in the shade of the mango trees.

  • A square has, as a basic purpose, the ability to aggregate people in open space. The square of the Republic in Belem is more than that: true nerve center of the city, ali reign of various types and tribes, forming a varied and tasty broth culture. Inside the square there are two cultural equipment: Theatro da Paz (beautiful, the Golden times of the cycle of rubber) and the experimental Waldemar Henrique, small but charmosissimo. Sunday rolls a fair great there, with food stalls, crafts and clothes. Key point of visit to meet in fact life belenense.

  • I was a Sunday morning and I was going on the craft fair. Well diversified, I expected a little more of the local crafts, but still worth the walk. The big problem is the sidewalk that has many holes.

  • Beautiful square, is the theater of peace address, however, the square is a bit abandoned. On Sundays, it's very well frequented and great for walking and shooting, however, the night is very bleak and so dangerous. I do not recommend frequent it at night.

  • It is one of the plaza more beautiful city it stands the statue of the Republic, representing Brazil. The plaza is home to two of the main theaters of the city, such as theatre peace and Waldemar Henriques. The Sunday develops the market square where you can find products and souvenirs at a good price. In the square many of the political and cultural life of city activities. Good place to spend the afternoon and take some air so warm here. Note: be careful with valuables, not walk the square in the evening, if there is no activity.
