Owner description: 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.

Beautiful area of street art (not only one street which people think) with shops focused on art, fashion, and cute cafés. People are very nice. I have heard it's not a place to go in the evening or once it gets dark, but in daytime it's wonderful.

A standard stop on a street art tour of Sao Paulo, it's very attractive, lots of flowers, hummingbirds, and vivid colors that photograph nicely. It is not as "edgy" as other urban art areas and lacks the wicked humor and political bite of some other sites -- with the exception of the Feast of Democracy panel at the end which is very powerful indeed. We did, however, greatly enjoy meeting artists who were actively painting. We even purchased one of the intricately painted spray cans from Local Art gallery. Rolling papers available here too.

Definitely an awesome neighborhood to visit for a couple hours. Lots of great art, shops and restaurants. My friend and I went on a Tuesday morning and there was no one around, which was great to take photos. I highly recommend exploring this area.

Is an alley based on a neighborhood where you can find a lot of restaurants, bars and pubs. It is a nice place to take a great picture. But just that. Then you can walk around in the neighborhoodand enjoy!

The alley is a very different experience from any other you will live in São Paulo, great and different street art, here you will find all kinds of tastes in music, art, handcrafted jewlwey, clothes and of course a lot of food and drinks to spend some hours of the day enjoying the weather and the paintings in the walls. This is a very good and interesting activity, everything you see, eat or buy is one of a kind and of course, a great place to take the best picture for social media. This place is definitely a must.
