Praca da Republica, Belem

3.6
#14 of 107 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.

  • Situated in the Centre of Belem, the square of the Republic meets beyond the traditional bandstand and theater, famous for their artistic performances since the beginning of the story of Bethlehem, a fantastic handicraft on Sunday where the visitor apart from memories of Bethlehem the super prices into account, you will be able to buy handcrafted in wood or on screens, or jewelry made with material of forest-at good prices. There are also many stalls with typical foods and Nontype, super prices into account. An excellent program for any of the week, for those who like to walk and enjoy a pleasant and quiet square; and a vital program on Sunday mornings for those visiting Bethlehem. For those who stay in good hotels that are in their own square or nearby, mandatory program.

  • Sunday morning we went to Republic square where there is a trade show, which we thought was. The fair let us down a little but the stroll across the square and visit to the theater credit.

  • This Plaza has just received a makeover and became even more beautiful. The square is super quiet, though is in the middle of the town surrounded by traffic. There you will find the main, teatr theatre of peace. I always Sundays, vu best day to go because the Sunday happens to gathering of people and has typical foods, fairs with sales of various products and musical events to suit all tastes.
