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.

A friend took me to see this "Wynwood like" alley that had different art displayed. The beauty of it is these walls will have different works since different people are encouraged to draw on these walls. Talk about self-expression:-)!

No this place just got to popular, overpacked with tourists, it is now losing most of its character. Still probably worth a visit, but I am not sure for how long...

Came here on a late Monday afternoon and the place was packed with people. The street art is nice although there are only a few that really stand out. Worth a visit nonetheless

I'm sad I only had half an hour there. This was an absolutely amazing place that I could honestly spend hours and hours at!

A fun diversion during a night exploring the area. We took some beers and hung around for a while, getting a feel for the place. I hope we see more of this quality for time to come.

A visit to Sao Paulo's Vila Madalena district and the colorful Batman Alley ("Beco do Batman") is well worth it, should you have time to spare in Sampa. Take the metro to Vila Madalena - the train terminates there. Walk out towards the bus terminal. At the first street-corner, turn right into Tim Maia street and walk towards the stairs... More

This is an interesting location, but certainly is not a "must do", while in SP. On our visit, most people were there for photo ops or to create videos.
