A nice journey to the past of our city, with many art pieces that show in influences and references of that time in the city. The yard and the coffee shop are nice places to be, to have a nice talk and leave all the noise and technology outside.

This was a peaceful haven in a city of hustle and bustle. The decor inside was simple and uncomplicated. It was a Spirit filled Church built 1554. Well worth a visit if you like to go into Churches.

It is a pity there are so many "weird people" in this area of the city. But once you get inside the Pateo do Collegio, you can enjoy yourself and relax. Their "guava and cheese" mousse is amazing (the milk candy one, too) and you can also get other snacks or dishes. It is a bit pricy, though.

This place is where the City Of São Paulo (de Piratininga) was founded in 1554. The Jessuist Missionaries founded. The Jose de Anchieta's (one of the missionaries) femur is at the museum. Nice colonial architecture.

the Church is worth the visit, simple but educative, although everything is in Portuguese, it makes a bit hard to understand, but it`s worth to visit

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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 “Viaduto do Chá”. If you find yourself amazed by the local language, the Museum of Portuguese Language is the place to go. Cultural centres, like Banco do Brasil’s, also offer a variety of entertainment options. Finally, if you fancy watching a Gregorian mass with organ music, stop by São Bento Monastery on a Sunday morning.
