Nice park with huge trees and even a small lake. Lots of police and we felt very safe and a very charming weekend market of arts and crafts.

It is well worth visiting this square on Sundays as arts and crafts are on sale. The space devoted to the market has been reduced and strolling at your leasure is less attractive!

The park itself has great potential with stunning trees and a lovely little artificial pond and fountain. However there are homeless people everywhere and no police to be seen when we were there, which naturally made it feel unsafe.

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by
the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the
neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
