São Paulo´s Little Italy
sep 2017 • Priatelia
The Bexiga district was once home to the tens of thousands of Italian immigrants who arrived in São Paulo in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. However, like its New York counterpart, the overwhelming majority of their descendants now live elsewhere.

The Italian influence is still reflected in a number of restaurants, pizzerias and bakeries, festivals and a church called Nossa Senhora Achiropita. The streets are bedecked in Italian flags at festival time which attracts thousands of visitors. There is also a weekend flea market held in a square.

I would not recommend it particularly unless you are in town for a couple of days and preferably have a local person to explain things. It´s located less than a mile from Avenida Paulista and near the downtown area. Although it is a bit run down and dirty in parts, the buildings are refreshingly low after the monstrous skyscrapers in so many other areas.
