An open-air mall

Located in the Historic Downtown, the Pólo Saara is considered to be the largest open air mall of the State of Rio de Janeiro. Composed of eleven streets on the surroundings of Alfândega St., it has over 88 stores, most of which cater to the popular market. At the end of the 19th century, the region was originally occupied by immigrants of different nationalities who opened up small family business. The buildings of Saara still preserve the original architecture of that time. The region is known as the Mecca of popular commerce and offers a variety of clothing stores, toy stores, souvenir stores and even some official Rio 2016 merchandise. The Pólo is in the same region that some touristic attractions, like the Campo de Santana, the Candelária Church and the Biblioteca Parque Estadual.
