I studied at the school situated within the monastery, and had every opportunity to explore the place. There is a huge bell on top of the church, which is accessible. The Pope was lodged there by the occasion of his visit to Sao Paulo. There...More

This really is quite a surprise, as the outside of the church isn't very interesting, yet inside, it's got breathtaking decor, in a mix of modern styling and antiquity. Alas, photography is forbidden and strictly enforced, which is pointless as well as annoying.

I was so keen to visit but my business hosts were very insistent not to visit this area alone. The surrounding streets are full of homeless, drunk and drugged up loiterers. The parks and squares are dirty and all just feel dangerous. Especially if you...More

If you like history is a good place to go. Represents the beginings of São Paulo City. I couldn't know the museum inside the old building but the restaurant - a good example of architectural retrofit - justify your visit.

This monastery is a piece of art where you rarely find something like this in this busy area. The floor, the ceiling, the walls, the altar and the domes keep calling visitors to have a second and third and tenth look at their beautiful art....More

Sunday masses here are very popular. The Sermon is particularly good, given by very intelligent priests.

Certainly the most beautiful and inspiring church interior in São Paulo. Consider planning your parking,if going by car. .

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
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
