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.

  • Very nice atmosphere and extremely friendly guide. We saw the magnificence of the Palace and the itinerant collection of palatial pinacoteca with furniture of the time of the bandeirantes. All very well maintained and clean. The Hall where happen sometimes cultural events or political order very Rico in detail. Worth a visit.

  • I found very interesting the runners, with photos of everyone who has ever governed our State, which are relic of very old times, there's a lot of history to be seen, what struck me most, was a giant framework at the entrance of the Palace. I recommend!!!

  • 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.

  • Great place to visit, in relation to the Government disagree is a regular at most because it is more one of the slave oligarchy. But since leftist parties who provide in this country as well as so-called saviors of the fatherland, Bolsonaro, Marina, it is best to leave the oligarchy in power even. So, doesn't make it worse at least. Worse than the power in the hands of the oligarchy and view the country ruled by Bolsonaro, I believe it will be a phenomenal kicker.
