Bandeirantes Palace, Sao Paulo

(3.9/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1955, Bandeirantes Palace is the seat of the state government and home to a large collection of Brazilian art. Visit the palace/museum for a guided tour of hundreds of works by artists such as Portinari, Aldo Bonadei, Djanira, Almeida Júnior, Victor Brecheret, Ernesto de Fiori, and Aleijadinho. The building’s name is a tribute to the 17th century’s pioneering explorers who expanded São Paulo’s borders almost to its current limits. Inside these walls you can see an array of colonial furniture, leather and silver artifacts, and European tapestry. In an eclectic style, the palace walls are covered with panels describing the history of São Paulo. Don’t leave before visiting the palace garden, a thriving habitat of more than two thousand species of native plants, trees, and birds.

  • The Museum of the Palace of Pioneers, little do they know. is open to the public and free. Entries are allowed full all the time. We went on a Sunday morning and had the Museum to ourselves, with a right to exclusive tour with d. Abigail, which is more than 30 at the Museum. There was little acquis, because great part was on display at FIESP, but it was interesting. We had the opportunity to view a ' pocket ' exhibition on Jânio Quadros, who was Governor of the State, President of the Republic and Mayor of SP. Various cool stuff. A curiosity: the pal ´ cio was not to be the seat of Government, but a University that would be created by the Matarazzo family. Not to be missed!

  • The visitation is possible without a lot of bureaucracy, is open to the public almost every day, for free and with a guide to explain what's what. I went there with another goal, a possession of Secretary of State, but as there was time I went for a walk. It was worth it, many works of art, history of São Paulo and its people. There is the Government of the State of São Paulo and is the official residence of the Governor. Of course it is not allowed access to the residential area, but the public area, is worth a visit.

  • It was a great surprise when I asked if I could come in and the PM has informed us that Yes, it was open to the public every day and free of charge. A guide has come to us the area where there are exhibitions of works of art, talked about the history of the building and even took picture for us. Great ride for schools.
