In the heart of the Vila Madalena neighborhood, there is an open-air graffiti art gallery, known as Beco do Batman (Batman´s alley).

The first murals appeared in the 1980s and what was a degraded spot, today has become an artistic attraction, with interventions by Graffiti artists

A few blocks away from the famous Beco do Batman, you´ll find Beco do Aprendiz.
