Vilaboin Square, Sao Paulo

3.5
#350 of 1,023 in Things to do in Sao Paulo
This cozy and quiet spot in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world, Vilaboin Square is surrounded by numerous small restaurants and bars. Mingle with locals relaxing here during the day, and return later for a taste of genuine Brazilian night life. Once the site of a soccer field, the square is now a protected area. At its center stands a fig tree, planted in the 1930s, which in its day symbolized the beginning of this district’s urbanization. The plaza’s 24-hour newsstand is said to be one of the best in town. Parking can be difficult to find here, so come on foot or as part of a bicycle tour.

  • The square is quite abandoned. There's not much to justify going to bars or restaurants close if you do not live or work there.
