Why Go To São Paulo

This massive megalopolis of more than 20 million people makes São Paulo one of the largest cities by population in the world. São Paulo (also known as Sampa by its residents) is characterized by its trademark wide avenues and uniquely designed skyscrapers, which showcase its modern appearance. Whether you’re interested in exploring museums and parks or discovering the culinary scene, this cosmopolitan city has something for everyone.

So what’s the first thing to do? Take in São Paulo’s stunning cityscape from the top of the Edifício Itália, which provides a breathtaking panoramic view of this bustling city. Nearby, you can browse the gourmet foods and grab a bite to eat at Mercado Municipal de São Paulo. Also in this neighborhood, the neo-Gothic Catedral da Sé de São Paulo may catch your eye with its enormous spires or the gorgeous Theatro Municipal de São Paulo might pique your interest with is detailed facade.

Next, make your way to Avenida Paulista for a stroll – it’s one of the city’s premier streets, filled with shops, hotels and the Museu de Arte de São Paulo, home to collections from artists like Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso and Degas. When you tire of the concrete jungle, head to the Parque do Ibirapuera, which offers a relaxing escape from São Paulo’s hectic streets and sky-high buildings.
