Pateo do Collegio

São Paulo's first building.

It is believed that the chronicles of this building were the first to be established in São Paulo in 1554, when the colonists set up a Jesuit Order to evangelise the indigenous peoples. It was probably only a cabin in those days and the structure of the building has drastically changed, having been modernised in the 1970s. It is situated in a peaceful and natural haven in the middle of the metropolis and its charm can be ignited with a journey to the past to discover the birth of the city. Inside you can discover its historical-cultural aspects, from classical music concerts to children's workshops. There is even a historic library with 12th century manuscripts, a crypt-museum with unique objects, an art gallery, scale models of the city's origin and sacred artwork in the Padre Anchieta Museum. Strangely enough, when the Jesuits arrived in 1554 they didn't have religious carvings to explain their beliefs, so they had to import Portuguese and Spanish artisans.
