Vila Madalena is São Paulo’s bohemian, hippy neighborhood, where galleries, bars, and boutiques push the edge of what’s cool against the backdrop of graffiti lined streets. The vibe here is eclectic: you’ll find art students, trendsetters, and entrepreneurs discussing the next big thing over cocktails, while soccer games and live music play on in the background. Selina Vila Madalena captures the free spirit of this enchanting scene.
