Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view. The neighbourhood also hosts assorted museums and has a strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a variety of good dining places and its own Municipal Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables, fruits and some special events. Outside the main subway stations you can experience the busy streets, but you just need to walk a few blocks to get back the residential serenity of the area.
Small but so precious. Very well-organized and maintained! Very interesting for adults and children. Free entrance. You cannot enter with bags and purses (there are lockers available). No food or drinks inside. No parking lot - we went on a Sunday morning and could park the car almost in front of the museum. Recommended!

Judging by the information in other reviews, I'm assuming that this is related to the Paulista museum as I couldn't see any other museum when there.
This museum is currently closed for renovations, but the whole area is stunning and worth visiting even without the museum.
Fast, reliable and safe. Needs to be like that in a city of 20 million people. Fantastic system with the closed doors in a glass panel between the platform and the rails, till the train stops. An additional safety measure, particularly during rush hours when people tend to push.
My husband and I went there for the first time with some friends on a Sunday for lunch. We got there around 1pm and we were promptly attended. At first sight, it seems its a small place, but as you enter the restaurant, you can see its really big and confortable. The cool thing is the enormous pan where they...
This charming ice cream shops sells by the weight. So you can choose as many flavors as you'd like. And trust there are more than enough. It's very delicious and great. Threat yourself to many interesting flavors.
Having lunch at Grão Ipiranga is hard for those undecided. The options are in great numbers and tastes. Do watch out for card mismatches when asking for drink or coffee.
Their pizza, esfiha and cakes are also very good. Try a piece of the bem-casado cake, if you have a sweet tooth.
If you want to taste good Brazilian food for an affordable price, you should check this restaurant. They have couple locations in São Paulo. Most of them in locations that are not in the gastronomic route, but you won't be disappointed.
Try the magic chicken without bones with vinaigrette(type of salad mix of onions, tomatoes).
Beware of long cues, so...
