Important first time visitor stop, or walk

It's one of the main veins of POA. If you work in downtown POA you certainly walk this street to go out for lunch, go to the bank, go shopping... It's a promenade, no cars allowed.

Rua da Praia is a traditional commerce area of Porto Alegre. You can find lots of stores on this street. It is a place to walk down town and sight see Porto Alegre

It used to be the "point" of Porto Alegre where boys and girls walk and flirt. Today is not as nice as it was before and there is serious concerns about safety day and night.

You'll see a little of everything - it's the real city, the ugly and the beautiful side by side.

Locals in a hurry and relaxed tourists find each other strolling by that gourgeous old urban pass.
