Praca da Republica, Belem

3.7
#13 of 90 in Things to do in Belem
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.

  • The square is very beautiful, has just been inaugurated and receives a fair on Sundays. When I went to was well packed, mostly of families with their catiorinhos. At the most it's just a square.

  • I met the Republic square and noticed that the same is quite beautiful and hot to spend free time. Has a beautiful monument honoring the Republic. She was recently revitalized and is clean and safe. Are in an excellent condition and it has plates "begging" the population to preserve and not destroy it. Go before that happens.
