Praca da Republica, Sao Paulo

Landmark
The weekend market at Praca da Republica is well worth a visit, if not for the food alone. International cuisine, including Japanese and Italian, is served up alongside traditional Brazilian street food, or if you would prefer something sweet, the homemade cakes are delicious. As you eat, street performers entertain you with local music and dance, and the atmosphere is electric. Have a wander around the other stalls where you will find an abundance of arts and crafts, most of them authentic and reasonably priced. Praca da Republica has always been the focal point of cultural life in São Paulo. Historically, locals would meet to watch rodeos and bullfights, but today the square is used for concerts, political rallies, and other events where large crowds are expected. During the week, when the square is quieter, you can take refuge from the sun under the shade of the trees, and relax.

  • The handicraft market to dinaos weekend is amazing! Of CIS of week must be with an open mind, otherwise it's decadent ... but it's worth the visit! Part of Sao Paulo. For years I've worked in this region and has never had any unpleasant event.

  • A square that should get more attention from the authorities, dangerous, full of user of drugs, prostitution, though there are some cops, guards around, but the feeling of insecurity prevails. Only plus point is the fair which takes place on the weekend of crafts and a variety of food stalls, there's a lady that sells incenses wonderful per unit and very good price.

  • Small square in downtown Sao Paulo. Be careful here lots of pickpockets and petty street crime but strong police presence there to insure the safety of the tourists.

  • Ok
