Having heard and read so much about the MASP before my visit I was really looking forward to this, and I'm glad to say I was not disappointed. Firstly, the architecture is astonishing, both inside and out. Even if there wasn't any art inside, the...More

The building in itself is an eyecatcher on Avenida Paulista: four red pillars connected by two long concrete beams, also painted red, which are holding a glass and concrete structure above a big free space. Alone this piece of architecture from the 1960's in the...More

We could see many of the works by the worlds greatest painters. Only a few going from each but going from early ad to 1800’s. Amazing to see the quality of great works of art amongst some of current Brazilian art.

Nice museum with 1 floor of main exhibit space and several smaller areas for special exhibits. The museum is currently undergoing renovations so things can seem a little disorganized. Artwork is creatively displayed on large free standing glass panels, which is unique, but one drawback...More

MASP, a five minute walk from our apartment, is the Met and the MOMA of São Paulo. It offers a superb permanent collection arranged in rows - not against walls - from the historically early works to contemporary works, including photographs. One can happily spend...More

Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the
place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the
area is an important cultural part of the city, with
the bohemian and the religious costumes of its
inhabitants on full display. In August, the large
Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with
a variety of Italian food and music. You can
experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking
