The weekend market at Praça da República - República 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. Praça da República - República 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.

  • In the past, where the secretariat of education works today, the Caetano de Campos School was operated, where many famous names of the Society of Paulistana studied. In the square also where many years ago it was possible to stroll in the famous Domingueiras, today remained only the most famous handicraft fair of São Paulo on Sundays. It's worth knowing.
