Welcome to São Paulo!

The economic capital of Brazil is home to an astounding cultural diversity, unparalleled elsewhere in South America.

With 20 million inhabitants in the greater metropolitan area, skyscrapers as far as the eye can see, you can’t talk about São Paulo without talking about its size.

With over 110 museums and 400 cinemas and theatres, São Paulo has something to captivate its 15 million annual visitors. For dining, no experiences are excluded: Japanese, French, Italian, and much, much more: the variety of its 13.000 restaurants brings together all the different cuisines of the world, the result of several waves of migration which make up the wealth of the city. Brazilian cuisine, of course, takes the lion’s share, and popular foods such as pastels, feijoada, moqueca or even the coxinhas remain the preferred choice of Brazilians to accompany a caipirinha amongst friends at nightfall.

Whether you are visiting for work, traveling with family, or exploring the city solo, you will find a meaningful, fascinating way to connect with this amazing city!
