  • The Feira de Sao Cristavao offers a nice opportunity to get to know a first feeling of the way of life of the people from the north-east, because it is mainly these who meet here to buy crafts and other goods from there and to enjoy authentic music (Forro and Sertanejo - it's dancing!) to eat the delicious traditional food. On the weekends there is great live music, the Brazilians have a lot of fun with karaoke. Conclusion - the place is worth a visit!

  • Every time I go to Rio I have to go to this fair. Cheerful place, lively people, safe atmosphere, plenty of food, cold beer and good price!

  • I love this place, and as a tourist destination, it's a little bit off the beaten path. However, this doesn't mean that it's still not worth the visit. Make sure that you arrive here by uber or a taxi. Public transport options are a no-go to get here. It has an authentic local atmosphere, and people are friendly and welcoming. Expect lots of interesting gift shops and souvenirs, but aside from this you can also sample delicious Brazilian fare, from the north-east of Brazil. Expect grilled meats, well cooked barbecue and other local treats.
  • SO fun! It is hard for a tourist to navigate this place, but if you get a chance to go there with local friends, must go. Everyone is having fun, eating delicious food, and dancing all night long!
