It's possible that this is a cool spot to visit on weekends, but it's not worth the trip out on a weekday, especially with rain. Almost all of the vendors are gone, and the place seems kind of sad. I'd try it again on a...More

If you like the northeast area of the country, that’s the place for you. Great food anywhere in one of the restaurants, souvenirs of all kinds and very nice people everywhere. They have live shows as well and there’s a lot of fun!

Come here on a weekend afternoon - you won't regret it. There are many places selling all kinds of stuff, good restaurants, but the best part is the live shows, with great music and locals dancing and singing. Great, authentic experience.

This is probably one of those unique places in Brazil where you find typical food, drinks, artists and handcraft stuffs. Just avoid the hot temperatures during the summer
