  • The campus Darcy Ribeiro is a university town. It's hard to find any buildings, even for those who already have a notion of the campus. Is a university environment, library, restaurant, banks. For those who want to know the space to meet even, perhaps not the best rides. Worth a go if the person has any academic purpose.
