This was a peaceful haven in a city of hustle and bustle. The decor inside was simple and uncomplicated. It was a Spirit filled Church built 1554. Well worth a visit if you like to go into Churches.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal

this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
