The Barrio Brasil remains quaint and romantic in its cobbled streets and seigniorial mansions, but its double life of gossipy barrio and hippie conglomerate have rendered it irresistibly cool.
This is an inviting neighbourhood of wide open windows, where the buzzing of family lunches and punk-rock soundtest blend in perfectly. No wonder it has become de rigueur for locals and visitors alike. A great number of bars, designer restaurants have surfaced in recent years without altering the ambiance of hip that is so innate to this beautiful area.
To get the most out of this barrio one must really just wonder along its streets and explore. East of Avenida Brasil you will find a great deal of fine buildings with quite eclectic architectural styles; from the Gothic Basilica del Salvador on Calle Almirante Barroso to the Art-Nouveau maisonettes of Calle Cienfuegos. North up the tree-lined Avenida Brasil, youll come across the Plaza Brasil, the epicentre of the neighbourhoods 24-hour buzz. During the day, children play hide-and-seek among the colourful sculptures by Federica Matta, daughter of the renowned Chilean painter Roberto Matta; while night-time sees the plaza morph into a youngsters' meeting point before the party moves on to one the many nearby clubs and bars.
We are 10 minutes from downtown and 2 minutes from Plaza Brasil.
