What you'll do

We are in one of the exits of the Brás subway and take a bus for 5 minutes to Mercúrio Street, from there you will see the three attractions: The Catavento Museum, the Municipal Market and the Cereal Zone. We will go to the Mercadão Municipal to know exotic fruits and several other foods, I suggest the mortadela sandwich, icon of São Paulo. So, we will go to the Cereal Zone stores, I suggest some stores that sell with a more competitive price, anyway, we will have enough time to get into several. If you want apricots, nuts, essential oils and tea with incredible prices, this is the perfect place! Finally, the Catavento Museum, which presents various exhibitions and contents related to Science, in addition to having a range of different types of butterflies. There is still a beautiful garden with fountains and native trees such as Pau-Brazil. At the end of the tour, I will go with the bus group to the subway República, from where we said goodbye.
NOTE: Catavento Museum has paid admission, tickets not included, I suggest entering the official website and checking the value. On Tuesdays, admission is free.
Note: We will be near 25 de Março Street, for those who want to take advantage, but it is NOT included in the itinerary.

Where you'll be

The Mercadão is well known, but you certainly have not heard of the Cereal Zone, where there are stores that sell practically the same things as the Mercadão, but with lower prices. A real find for the pocket and the palate. Then you will get to know these two gastronomic places, besides the Catavento Museum, which presents science in a unique way, there is that apparatus that shivers our hair, it is possible to make several experiments!
