At the heart of Rio Antigo, the city's historic center, Rua Joaquim Silva is home to scores of bars, restaurants and nightclubs as well as interesting stores selling antiques and collectibles. On the second Saturday of every month, the street comes alive with street theater, live music, poetry readings, food and drink stalls, and a lively market selling everything from new and vintage clothes to antique furnishings. The proceedings start in the afternoon and continue well into the night. Pull up a chair at a pavement café and relax with a drink and a bite to eat as you absorb the colorful atmosphere.
