Ah, the mighty Barra Shopping. Once the biggest mall in Latin America, in spite of huge and ever growing competition it remains the face of faceless Barra. Big, green and ugly, it nevertheless poses a shopaholic’s paradise thanks to the likes of French electronics giant FNAC and Made in Brazil, a music megastore of all things samba. As you would expect there are plenty of restaurants to fuel the frenzy, as well as a 20-lane bowling alley and kid-heaven Megazone (pictured) to really help occupy any bored minds with some healthy competition.
