What you'll do

Did you know that Sao Paulo hosts the biggest Japanese community outside Japan and the biggest Italian community in the world?

 

Liberdade, place with a strong and very long history, once place of executions and militar district, became about 100 years ago the place of settlement of the Japanese immigrants.

Bixiga, once a area of Afro-Brazilian resistance  was occupied around the 40's by Italians from Calabria, running away from the misery and the horrors of the II World War

 

This 2 neighborhoods, very close to each others, are erroneously and simply considered the Japanese and Italian neighborhoods of Sao Paulo, while they're actually places of great ethnic diversity!

All this diversity can be very well synthesized in its peculiar and different cuisine.

Ready to taste Japanese pastel with sugar cane juice, discover about Brazilian sushi and get a sandwich of carne louca before to end with a cannoli ;) 

Where you'll be

We will start from Liberdade Square

After an historical introduction to the neighborhood we'll take the main street and get some snacks.

After eating around will be the time for architecture and residential vilas, let's discover who's living today in this area.

Then will be the time of Bixiga

In the Italian neighborhood we will visit the traditional flea market of Don Orione Square and finally eat again (eheh)

Walking along the main street 13th of May we will end the tour at the Achiropita Church, just in time for lunch!
