Local Gaudi Style House in a Favela
The tour is focused in the local culture. Estevao is the builter of the house, even though he does not know how to write and read and had never heard of Gaudi, he built his house with a resemblance of Gaudi's work. We go inside Estevao's Gaudi Style house, totally built with recycled art objects. The house has three floors and is inside the biggest favela in Sao Paulo, Paraisópolis, over one hundred thousand people live there. It is impressed by the amount of details within the construction of the house, and for the greatness of the favela. After that, we go see the art district of Vila Madalena, where there are beautiful street art paintings. You should wear confortable old pants, or bermudas.
Going direct to Estevao's house, we visit inside all the three floors. If possible we may walk a bit around the house area. After we go see street art at the art District of Villa Madalena.
