  • Walk the antique stalls in the square that are reminiscent of childhood or Grandma's House. Furniture, crockery, decorations, toys, objects of various eras. And in the middle of the square has the food stalls like the Bahian who sells a delicious apple pie and other delights, in addition to the stalls of snacks, pastries, candy, etc. Around the square exhibitors of clothing and craft products. Great ride pro Saturday!

  • Actually has things of a flea market. Has a hint of gastronomic culture. Things of various prices which allows any person to acquire something. In addition to the stalls of the square itself has half a dozen shops in the vicinity. Happens on Saturdays. It's right by the alley, some 500 metres from Batman, which may include the 2 visits on the same day easy.

  • Good places to eat. Some exercise equipment. Supposedly has free WiFi but I could not find it. The baiano restaurant has free WiFi, requires Facebook login.
  • Very nice place. Not cheap, but you can find all kind of memorabilia there. Nice music some times.
  • The products are expensive, but the atmosphere is pleasant. In the center of the square has a good court, with live music. In the area you can find several restaurants, with typical Brazilian cuisine.
  • Lots of vintage stuff, some old stuff, good music. There are some art galleries around, also good restaurants. Try real Brazilian food at fair, from Belém do Pará, it's delicious. Be prepared to eat standing up, but with a delicious Tacacá this is not a problem.
  • Great way to spend a few hours, exploring the vendors wares, antiques and accessories. There is some tasty food vendors also, plus live music.
