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.

  • Going by day in this place (especially on weekends) is very good! Handicraft fair, easy access to the Metro and other leisure options around. But at night the place is transformed and the stalls give way to a certain insecurity. (16/06/2019)

  • Square with flowerbeds, sidewalks, trees, busts, but in a state of deterioration and dirt. On Saturday has fair crafts and decorating objects

  • Was a good place to walk. Not anymore, so sad.
  • Amazing place to know the city center of São Paulo. Its a Central Park of downtown São Paulo.
