  • Stronghold of the Italians in the past today still live on nostalgia, many old mansions, the imposing staircase, restaurants serving Italian cuisine. A pleasant walk for the weekend, to see the antique fair in Don Orione Square.

  • With the largest national heritage area in the State of São Paulo, the Italian quarter, fight daily for your cultural survival and to keep your memory alive. It is still possible to walk through the Bixiga looking late, because not all overturned building and many mansions survive. One of the sights of the neighbourhood, Bixiga staircase, scene of movies, novels and several clips, has been revitalized and is now living space in the region. Just ahead of the Staircase is the Don Orione Square, where every Sunday the antique fair. And own street 13 may, that after looking at antiques and curiosities of São Paulo you can taste the sweet taste of Bixiga. With its many Italian restaurants, it's definitely a destination Bixiga culinary unsurpassed. Site chosen by master Chef Henry Fogarty to open your restaurant's newest endeavors Jamile. The neighborhood also happens every year the Grand feast of our Lady of Achiropita, the largest Italian party in town and one of the largest in Brazil. Another curiosity of the neighborhood is the Cake of Bixiga that entered the Guinness Book as the largest cake in the world. Who thinks it's just a neighborhood Italian Bixiga all wrong ... This Bohemian was chosen by samba school, the Vai-Vai, which makes his essays in an eclectic and fun way. The neighborhood has grown and is growing every day. Some say that's becoming the new Bixiga "fashion district" of São Paulo – for good and for bad, as it is normal to happen. The fact is that it's been a while since the region been attracting new gastronomic and artistic cultural enterprises that initiated this current buzz. His eclectic night now houses several ballads to tribes of different tastes. That is, it is a safe, fun and with various possibilities of having a romantic evening or fun with friends guaranteed!!!

  • The Bixiga always was one of the most traditional neighborhoods of São Paulo. Was very dirty and fallen, but is renewing! Full canteens, policing, restored and Bunting birds staircases in front of the Church. Worth the visit!
