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.

    On weekdays the square offers attractions, however on Sunday is a great place to hang out with family, friends, boyfriend. There are several huts scattered across the square selling products, in your most, local handicrafts. On Sundays there are enough police around the square. Anyone who come to Bethlehem to meet the Republic square.

    Days of weekend always has some attraction. Several stalls with crafts and local foods. Plenty of room to walk around, chat with friends and be distracted. Time another rolls some local entertainment. Very worth checking out.

    It's a nice place to hangout. Not very clean but not too bad. Every sunday there is a sale in the park where you can buy all kind of things.
