One of the main, most important and trendy avenues of Sao Paulo and even Brazil, a place that all those ve have the chance should visit. Although not very long, we can see many different beauties, music, people, art, culture. Although it is also not a "beautiful" place, of European standard, it is a unique beauty, a little piece of that Brazil.
Rua Coberta is a really beautiful covered walkway that has numerous shops and restaurants. There is a stage where local artists play at night, and during the Christmas season you have singers, trees, choirs, music groups, and other acts. It's free, but make sure arrive early to get a seat as early as possible.
There is a lot of spots to stop your car and take photos, spots to buy something to eat in the little snack bar.
The final destination is Morretes, a small town where you can eat barreado, a local meal prepared with red meat and served with bananas.
I never thought I would be there, but I was. Walking through the streets of the favela of A Rosinha is a lot safer than one may think it is. At least, going with someone else. It is important to follow the rules: do not take pictures except where the guide tells you, don´t ask... But it is a fascinating place. All the houses have more amenities than one would imagine. It's really incredible.
We found ourselves walking the streets of Olinda in Brazil, next to Recife city and although it was outside of the typical Brazilian Carnival time, we saw a unique tour of dolls that were following a boy.
Rua Oscar Freire is one of the most luxurious streets in Sao Paolo, a perfect to take a walk and, if your budget abides, do some shopping. It is one of the most famous streets in Brazil, and it's actually quite funny to walk it as it stands in sharp contrast to so much of the rest of Sao Paolo. It's close to the famous Paulista Avenue, and if you like chic shopping, you shouldn't miss it.
It was founded in 1676 by Domingo de Brito Peixoto that, once arriving, called it San Antonio dos Anjos Laguna. Its population grew and in 1714 around Villa. Today it's the perfect setting for an encounter with nature and taking a trip back in time.
Rua das Flores is in the centre of Curitiba. It is a pedestrian street that dates back to 1972. Its main features are the flowerbeds planted along its length, in addition to the old buildings, and the famous old cable car parked in the middle. You can also see musicians and street performers. There are plenty of nice bars where you can enjoy a snack or some delicious ice cream.
This is one of the greatest creations of the architect Jaime Lerner. Opened in 1991, this was the first covered streeet in Brazil. There was a time when it was very poorly staffed, but nowadays it has 17 stores and a fascinating workshop about the city. The two, twenty-four hour clocks are very interesting.
Foz city does not have much to do. The main attractions of the place are, in fact, the natural surroundings. But if you have to sleep in the city, I recommend going to the Avenida Brasil, one of the main streets, where there are several shops and bars.
