The place is Just beautiful, clean and calm. The employees are Very kind and available. There's a fantastic view of the sorroundings from the 3rd floor. Worth a visit!!

Went in to have a look inside the Mario de Andrade Libary, it's nice but nothing extraordinary. Very close to centro though.

I love this place to read and enjoy a little bit of silence in the middle of the city. They have great resources for those who want to research and simply read the newspaper of the day.

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by

neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
