Forget the main São Paulo cathedral in the Praça da Sé. For that matter, forget the Vatican too. This must be one of the most spectacular places of worship anywhere in the world. It's mind-boggling. That the mind of humankind conceived of it makes me...More

Stunning church built some time back in 1910... Very peaceful place which is both a monastery and a church. They have a shop which sells delicious bread and other goodies made by the monks.

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

You could visit the church for free, however I think you must reserve to visit the Mosteiro. I advice you to reserve the sunday brunch by wathsapp +551194075-0593, where you could send an English message.
