  • The history of the city of São Vicente goes through here, some of the most visited sights of the city with its famous sweets.

  • I went to visit my mother-in-law's request biquinha, a coconut candy. The description of my wife, the place remains the same. Improved the infrastructure of the stalls. My mother-in-law passed the cocada, which referred to your childhood. The Biquinha, itself didn't go, because it's kind of scary, and parking is a tough one to get. In this case, I had to sit still in a garage while my wife was buying sweets.

  • From what I read here ... has been revitalized.. can improve more. Diversify stalls ... have more toilets. that is encouraging local pro tourism but a step. I hope to improve.. looks like the homeless left the site
