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.

On a recent Sunday, my wife and I found good deals on semi-precious Brazilian stones like amethyst and blue topaz at the market in Praca de Republica. WE also found some beautiful displays and real preserved butterflies under glass.

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

floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
