“Go there for the Bakery...”
The praça is great for all the things that have already been mentioned but you should really go there for the bakery. It is worth waiting in the long queues for beautiful hot bread (R$6) and the sausage sandwich (R$2) . There is a German delicatessen next door but the bakery is…
this plaza is on the corner of one of the main streets in gramado and you don't need to plan a visit, as you are certainly visiting downtown and you will get to it anyways. It has several stalls selling handicrafts.
You cannot miss this place, is in the middle of the city, on your way to anywhere, so you have to pass by it. It is pretty, but not spectacular.
We visited this park on Xmas, there were great bakery spots with traditional bread and cakes, also an interesting exhibition made from recicled plastic botteles, houses are very well preserved as a good evidence of colonial times, good value!
It was great to see the baking of the colonial cakes and breads. Also the shopping was interesting, specially food items. Lots of restaurants and coffee/chocolate shops.
