WHAT TO DO IN SAO PAULO

PARQUE DO IBIRAPUERA
@ibirapueraoficial

 
A park for families, great for picnics, relaxing, sports, exercising, and appreciating art. Great for people-watching on weekends where it is a popular leisure destination among the residents of São Paulo. Its 1,584 square kilometers are home to three lakes, two museums, and many other cultural spaces. The park hosts several events throughout the year, such as free music shows and a water and light show in celebration of the end-of-year festivities. There are also two important monuments for you to visit: the Obelisk and the Monument to the Bandeiras.
Take the opportunity to eat at the Selvagem restaurant inside the park: reservations are required.


 

AVENIDA PAULISTA

@avenida-paulista


With skyscrapers, shopping centers, restaurants, cultural heritage, theaters, and cinemas, Avenida Paulista is a major business center, but it is also home to “MASP”, the São Paulo Museum of Art (@masp). At the end of this main avenue, there is also a museum of Japanese history in Brazil, with seasonal art exhibitions, called Japan House.

PINACOTECA
@pinacotecasp

 

The Pinacoteca de São Paulo is a museum of visual arts with an emphasis on Brazilian production from the 19th century to the contemporary period. The oldest art museum in the city, founded in 1905 by the Government of the State of São Paulo, it has been holding exhibitions of its renowned collection of Brazilian art and temporary exhibitions of national and international artists ever since.
 

 

BAIRRO DA LIBERDADE​
 

​Originally created by a large influx of Japanese immigrants in the early 1900s, it is supposedly home to the largest population of Japanese people outside of Japan. If you like Japanese food and culture, you will want to stroll the streets of this neighborhood.
 
MUSEU DO FUTEBOL
 
Located in Pacaembu, in the historical stadium that used to house the famous Corinthians Football Club, the football museum tells the history of the beautiful game in Brazil.

 

RUA OSCAR FREIRE
 

One of the best places to eat and shop in Jardins, especially on a beautiful day! We recommend taking a walk and exploring shops, restaurants, and cafes.
 


 

BECO DO BATMAN
 

"Batman Alley" is a street full of graffiti by artists from all over the world, located in the Vila Madalena neighborhood, a neighborhood known for its bohemian and hipster vibe. There are also many Brazilian bars to have a good beer, eat pastries, and watch people go by.
 

 
MERCADAO
 
The "Big Market" is situated in a grand building befitting the eclectic selection of local food and drink on offer inside. As well as perusing the tropical delights on offer from local vendors, visitors can enjoy authentic lunches and snacks, including the not-to-be missed mortadella sandwiches! Originally the city's very first grocery market, Mercadão first opened in 1933 and hosts around 300 stalls selling everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, to spices, cheeses and sweets, to meat and seafood.

 

SAMPA SKY
 

Inspired by the Skydeck in Chicago, this new attraction in São Paulo offers unique views over the city at a height of 150 meters. The viewpoint is made entirely of glass and allows visitors to see various tourist spots in the city from the 42nd floor of the Mirante do Vale building, the tallest in the capital.
 
 

MUSEU DO IPIRANGA
The Ipiranga Museum is the headquarters of the Paulista Museum, which specializes in Brazilian history and culture, and is part of the University of São Paulo. The building where exhibitions are now located – constructed between 1885 and 1890 - was designed to be a monument commemorating the Proclamation of Independence in 1822. In 1894, the newly created State Museum (Paulista Museum) was transferred to the monument and since then it has been known as the Ipiranga Museum.
MIS MUSEU DA IMAGEM E DO SOM
@mis_sp
The MIS Museum of Images and Sound opened in 1975 to exhibit works of “new media” which were being ignored by traditional museums. Located in the Pinheiros district, the museum’s collection includes films, videos, records, photographs and works of graphic design.
