Know Before You Go
Note that it is not a good idea to visit the area at night as there is some considerable risk of being mugged. If you do decide to go to see the mural after dark then go in a group, be aware of your surroundings and be careful. A much better idea is to take a visit during the day when there is a stronger police presence in the area and it is generally safer.The mural is located in the downtown area of Anhangabaú, which translates to "water of the bad spirit" in Tupi, the now-extinct language of the indigenous people of the region. It is located a short walk from the Anhangabaú metro station, on the red line.
