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 inspired filmmakers and other artists. To get the feeling of São Paulo in the beginning of the 1900s, visit the Municipal Theatre – you will be amazed by its architecture. The area also features several galleries. República is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.
The teatro municipal always draws crowds who visit Sao Paulo. The old colonial architecture is stunning from the outside while the tour tells a lot about its history, the way the theatro has been one of the major signposts of Brazilian theatre and musical culture. I heard that the first adaptation of Hamlet in Brazil was performed here. The teatro...
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.

We tried the 9-course pork meal. It was very good but a little too much and the wait time in between courses was pretty long. Also, be prepared to wait to sit down (up to 3 hours). People usually line up 1 hour before the restaurant opens.

"A Taste of Authentic Brazilian Cuisine"
reviewed 6 September 2017 by Luis V
Disappointed that my friends and I couldn't get a table at A Casa Do Porco on a Sunday afternoon, the wonderful staff at A Casa Do Porco suggested Dona Onca. Apparently, the chef of Dona Onca is the wife of the chef of A Casa Do Porco. How could we go wrong? So, off we went to this restaurant which...
It is incredible that this unique restaurant keeps their standard year after year. Located in a small street of the old downtown, the high ceiling, the silver vase, the silver sugar bowl, and the old school waiters remain the same. It is right that going there is for insiders, but it much more charming having meals there than in pasteurized...

I stayed in this hotel with a friend for the carnaval weekend. When we arrived early in the morning due to my flight our room wasn't available but Emerson the receptionist made sure we didn't have to wait for too long. Actually he was very helpful. The room was comfortable and the break fast had a good selection. The location...
Very basic......Lovely hotel,but looks like no one care enough to improve and make it better,how treat the guest....Hotel need heating at all the bedrooms, really cold at night. It was hard to sleep....Need to be more friendly with the guest,make the guest feel welcome day and night......I don't think I will ever stay there again..
Nice crew. The bedroom is comfortable but is a smoking hotel. The bedroom is very clean, no noise. The area is central but dangerous at night and at the day need be careful. Excellent price. Breakfast is included.
The hotel is located not far from the old and historical part of the city. It is not one of the nicest places (a lot of homeless people, drug addicts dwelling around, a lot of young men hanging around which does not really give a very safe feeling to me woman alone). At the same time it was mentioned to...
