This megalopolis of 15 million inhabitants is not only the financial capital of Brazil, but also the country’s cultural capital. Thousands of skyscrapers haphazardly dotted around the city reflect its rhythm and booming growth, as well as the constant battle between concrete and the abundant natural beauty found in the least expected areas.
Take one of our cheap flights to São Paulo to discover a city that may not compete with the beauty of Rio, but will seduce you with its diversity and cultural life. At the heart of the city, Avenida Paulista is the perfect place to stay during your visit. Once you have covered this road, stretching over two kilometres, you will soon begin to realise why they call São Paulo the ‘New York of Latin America’. Dazzling skyscrapers, including the Fiesp Building, stand alongside tens of cultural centres and one of the city’s most impressive museums, namely the MASP Museum. Designed by architect Lina Bobardi, it houses one of the most important European art collections in Latin America, with works by Rafael, Rubens, Botticelli, Velázquez, Turner and Poussin.
The centre boasts beautiful Art Nouveau buildings from the early 20th century, as well as the Praça da Sé, a green space where you will find the central point of São Paulo and the Metropolitan Cathedral. The Municipal Market, founded in 1933, is a traditional gourmet must-see for all food lovers. To enjoy some of the best views of the city, head to the Italy Building’s terrace. If you are looking for food, nightlife and samba dancing, the Vila Madalena neighbourhood is the place to be. Its steep, narrow alleyways decorated with graffiti are full of little restaurants, bars and interior design shops.
The perfect way to end your trip is with a visit to Ibirapuera Park, home to the first works by Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer. Surrounded by natural beauty, buildings such as the Bienal de São Paulo, the Contemporary Art Museum and the Ibirapuera Auditorium, provide a picture-perfect scene of boundless nature and impressive architecture.
