Street art and graffiti are no where as prevalent as in São Paulo, where virtually no surface is left untouched. This lengthy stretch of high-walled residences in Vila Madalena, nicknamed Batman's Alley, showcases some of the most impressive spray paint murals around. The constantly changing nature of the art form means there's sure to be something striking and new with each visit.

This place has beautiful street art. Since this place is popular place to take pictures, I highly recommend going here early in the morning. It can be difficult to take pictures when there are crowds of people trying to take the same pictures.

An incredible "art gallery" for graffiti. It really is quite beautiful, purposeful, and very poignant. The street is closed to vehicles so it's easy to walk around and take photos. Would highly recommend.

This alley is a must see if you are a lover of wall graffiti.. The neighbor hood is so eclectic, and the artworks are so impressive; you don't know what to expect around the next corner.. Fun place to visit when you are in São Paulo

The street is called Batman Alley and is well known for the biggest collection of wall graffiti in Sao Paolo. In fact it’s not just one street, but the whole neighborhood full of creative fantasy of artistic minds. We spent few hours walking there.
