CapoeiristasLocals come to this bustling square every evening to practice capoeira. My friend and I stumbled on a group of men practicing and joined the crowd that had gathered to watch. Their movements were so graceful and powerful. We were inspired to take a capoeira class ourselves the next day.
The square also has a huge dance party, with vendors selling snacks and drinks, once a week. Local bands provide the music.
