Could be okay but a bit unloved. Smells a bit like pee in places but worth 30 minutes to imagine what it used to look like in its prime
This rather large park in the middle of Belém has the beautiful neoclassical Teatro da Paz on one end, and many walkways, paths and fountains. The whole thing is somewhat lacking in maintenance and can be disapppointingly cluttered with trash. Still, it's a respite from the roaring city on all sides of the park.
Beautiful buildings in a large green setting that makes up the Rubber Boom heart of the city. Unfortunately many of the surrounding buildings have been replaced by dubious high rises. The square buzzes with people and craft stools on Sunday. Beware after dark.
The place is pretty but it seems it has been neglected for while, it seems dirty and not a very safe place. However is a must see, because is an important part of the historical site of the city.
On Sundays, families come here to have picnics and get some lunch from the street vendors. If you have strong stomach, try the Tacaca, the ultimate hangover cure. At night, avoid, since it´s a well known prostituition point.
