Praca da Republica, Sao Paulo

(600+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • It's an importante hub for Subway System. It Is beautiful and interesting old fashion Buildings around. It's Worth a visit !
  • 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.
  • It's cosy and lively
  • The place is nice during the day, but really dangerous at night
  • Park with potential, but lacking maintenance and security
