    • Explore art and parks in São Paulo

      São Paulo’s signature sprawling urban landscape combined with the renowned creativity of its residents has produced some of the greatest street art displays in Latin America. The city also boasts some impressively vast green spaces that hold their own against backdrops of bustling squares and busy avenues. This guided bike tour of São Paulo’s street art and parks will introduce you to the best of both worlds! You’ll begin in the Vila Madalena neighborhood before traversing Largo da Batata, Avenida Faria Lima, Parque Ibirapuera, Jardins, and finishing the city tour with a stop at Beco do Batman.

      Begin your São Paulo street art adventure in Vila Madalena, often considered the city’s coolest neighborhood. This neighborhood is known for its artistic and eclectic atmosphere where streets are filled with art galleries, studios, and street art displays. Soak up the energy and creativity of this neighborhood as you cycle through on your bike tour, stopping to admire the most prominent street art with commentary from your guide.

      Cycle onwards to the Largo da Batata, a square famed for its cultural events and buzzing atmosphere in the Pinheiros neighborhood of São Paulo. This public space is adorned with colorful murals and graffiti, showcasing the creative expression of local artists. These riotously colorful walls are the perfect backdrop for the street fairs, food festivals, and concerts that regularly fill this dynamic square.

      Ride the bike lane along the Avenida Faria Lima, cutting through São Paulo's business district. While you might struggle to find as much street art in this urbanized area, architectural marvels abound, and your guide will be able to point out the design elements and purposes of the most impressive of these contemporary constructions.

      Your city tour then arrives at the iconic Parque Ibirapuera, the largest green area in the city and a true oasis in this megalopolis. In addition to verdant forested areas and a pristine lake, the park also houses several impressive buildings by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. While the capital of Brasilia is Niemeyer's most famous creation, Parque Ibirapuera's Bienal, Auditorium, and Afro-Brazil Museum all showcase his signature expressive and voluminous style.

      Cycle through the upscale, leafy neighborhood of Jardins on the next stage of your bike tour. Admire the elegant houses and enjoy easy cycling through the residential streets. From here, you'll head towards the final stop on your guided tour: Beco do Batman (Batman Alley in English).

      This open-air urban art gallery is one of the most popular sightseeing destinations in the city and with good reason. The street gained its name in the 1980s when a mural depicting the superhero Batman was painted on one of the walls. Other artists continued this initiative and adorned the brick canvases with a variety of colorful murals depicting Brazilian culture and life in São Paulo, providing an unexpected insight into the creativity and preoccupations of São Paulo's creative circles.
