VILA ANGLO BRASILEIRA

Vila Anglo Brasileira is a small sub-district in the west of the city of São Paulo. In 2020 he turns 93 years old and still carries on with his daily practices of living together already forgotten in the great metropolises. With narrow cobbled streets and rugged topography where houses are inserted on the hill side or below street level, it still preserves a “neighborhood” atmosphere, and resists real estate speculation due to its peculiar characteristic. With the geographic configuration of the valley floor, it creates a contrast with the neighboring neighborhoods, such as Perdizes, Vila Madalena, Alto da Lapa and Sumarezinho.

The village is like a suburb in the downtown. The contact of its residents and families, this popular neighborhood has large hillsides, houses very close to each other and many families in the same yard, small shops, bars on street corners and people on the streets. It looks like a small town neighborhood, even though it is only a few minutes walk from the Vila Madalena subway.

Historian and resident of the neighborhood, Leandro Antônio Gatti, launched, by Editora Baraúna, two editions on “Histórias da Vila Anglo Brasileira told by some of its oldest residents” (2012 and 2015).

Leandro maintains a detailed blog about the history and events of this beloved Vila. Worth checking out: https://historiadavilaanglo.wordpress.com/
