For the 87th year running, the streets of Bixiga become an open-air cantina throughout August weekends as the Festa de Nossa Senhora de Achiropita gets underway. The party, a local parish fundraiser, serves up tens of thousands of pizzas, fogazzas and polenta alla bolognese each night. Wander from stall to stall seeing what tickles your fancy. If you'd rather sit down to eat, join the older generation at the fixed-price meals, with live music, on Saturday and Sunday nights, at the 'Cantina Madonna Achiropita'.
