Praca da Republica, Sao Paulo

2.5
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 Republic square in São Paulo is a very attractive tourist spot. Every Sunday or even on weekends has fairs of handicrafts, food and sometimes musical attractions. Toys like hop for kids. It is well located, is at the center of Sao Paulo. Near the subway Republic, huge buildings, banks, shops and bars. A good indication for those who like to walk around and enjoy.

  • A historic place, beautiful and full of stories, but unfortunately abandoned by the public sector, very dangerous and dirty.

  • This famous square is right in the Central of São Paulo is very wooded and with Lakes but very poorly maintained and frequented by medigos, it's pretty busy during the week because the exits from the underground station red and yellow L4 and L3 stay near the very commercial avenues Ipi ranga, São João, São Luis and points of interest such as Teatro Municipal, Viaduto do Chá, Edifício Copan, terrace Italia. On Sunday I went to the craft and food fair taking place all day, but I don't get why the tents are set up around the square where the Sun was inclement and not inside the square under the big trees.
