Neighbourhood: Pacaembu
Highlights of this neighbourhood include Pacaembu Stadium and the Museum of Soccer, but they are not the only attractions it offers. Street markets are part of São Paulo’s culture, and at Charles Miller Square you will find one of the city's best. Arrive early to be delighted by fresh fruits, vegetables, coconut water and “pastel”, fried dough filled with innumerable options including cheese, meat, and shrimp. If you are into architecture, don’t miss Casa Modernista and Casa Buarque de Holanda, two historic houses. The small residential streets along Pacaembu offer quiet refuge from the chaotic traffic.

Home for a modernist artist
Mar 2017 • Couples
This 3-floor house is the home for Brazilian lawyer, journalist, writer, poet and artist, Guilherme de Almeida (1890-1969). Located in a quiet hill near to Sumaré, the place is well preserved under the State culture secretary and offers a guided visitation. It is wonderful to know how was the life and history of a Brazilian exponent of the Modernist movement in twentieth century. Books, the furniture and collections of objects is of great interest for understanding the past aristocracy of São Paulo. The 3rd. floor, the "mansarda" was the place where Mr. Almeida spent the last days working on his masterpieces. Also visit the backyard of the house, where his dog "Ling-ling" was buried. The staff is well prepared to give most of information about the house. No entrance fee. Amazing!
