Bandeirantes Palace, Sao Paulo

4.1
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.

  • I went on a Saturday with a group. We were very well received by Ms. Raquel, our guide at the Palace. Very large and full of stories relating to the State of São Paulo and about art and culture.

  • The neighborhood of Morumbi began to meet his first mansions in the early 70. The official residence of our Governor was established at the place, a little before; I believe that in 1964. It's a very traditional and stately building, a few years ago I went on tour and I really enjoyed the interior. It's time to do it again. ...

  • 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.

  • The visits take place from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 4:00 pm in full hours accompanied by an educator. A rich collection of paintings, mostly of Brazilian modernism, sculpture and decorative arts, like porcelain.
