Bandeirantes Palace, Sao Paulo

3.9
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.

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 space of the building is very beautiful, there is a collection of very interesting and I think the tour is really good. Unfortunately, the day that I was the one who picked up the phone was not the "official guide", but another employee too embarrassed, I found it quite boring. I believe that the works of the Palace should be somewhere else, because the Morumbi is a neighborhood kind of against the grain of everything, especially, and the space already has a practical function itself, Executive Administration, I don't see much sense in mixing with the Museum.

    We were in the Government Palace, during the July holidays. We were met by a friendly, educated, who gave us clear and detailed explanations of all the acquis (unfortunately not sure of your name, but I think it's Karina) if not I apologize. She even told us that they have a special programming for schools, but that needs to be scheduled.

    The visits are free, extremely polite and attentive guide know in detail the history of the place and its collections. Unfortunately the visits are limited to public areas, we came to know only a fraction of the place, but it's worth the visit. Has a beautiful garden with cherry and ipês facing the Palace and a collection of amazing arts. A penalty is the limitation to take pictures inside the Palace. Who wants to know a little of the political history of the State cannot look upon the Palace.

    The Palácio dos Bandeirantes is a good ride for those who visit or live in São Paulo, located in Morumbi Stadium near Cicero Pompeu de Toledo, is quite large and imposing. Offer tours to visit, recommend the visit because it has many details connected with the history of São Paulo.
