Overview

Street art and graffiti are no where as prevalent as in São Paulo, where virtually no surface is left untouched. This lengthy stretch of high-walled residences in Vila Madalena, nicknamed Batman's Alley, showcases some of the most impressive spray paint murals around. The constantly changing nature of the art form means there's sure to be something striking and new with each visit.

Whilst you may have to wait to take pictures of the street art here, what's on offer is varied, colourful and expressive. A wander among the murals is a rewarding walk.

Art is something I could not ever judge. It depends on special public taste to decide whether it is good or not; if it worth millions or not and that is the boring side of art. I don't know how beco do batman started but...More

I went to Batman alley with a walking tour. The artwork is amazing! I think it was worth it to go with a guide because I learned a lot about what the artwork meant and the development of the alley.

This was honestly one of the coolest parts of our trip. There were lots of people taking pictures, but since there are no cars there, it was easy to do and everyone was patient with each other. There are so many paintings and little alleys...More

The Batman Alley has several draws along the streets, it's a really nice place to the the SP art scene vibe and to take cool pictures. If you can, visit it during week days, because during weekends/holidays it might be really crowded.
