  • The Cathedral impresses by the size and lavishness, either inside or outside. Magnificent architecture in the heart of São Paulo, which is the praça da Sé. Worth a visit, even if you're not Catholic. Attention in the surroundings of the Cathedral because it has many thugs and beggars.

  • The Cathedral is beautiful, it's worth a go, pray, bring good energy. Have a stroll in the crypt that Valley super worth it. And a beautiful place, full of history. This tour is guided and guide is extremely nice. The tour happens every day of the week and it costs 7 dollars.

  • Well maintained cathedral in a beautiful neo-gothic style. Maybe one of the few buildings in this styles out of Europe. It was amazing to hear the organs during the mass. The crypt below the church is also very interesting. Be careful, though, with the surroundings, the area near the church have a lot of homeless people. Although there are many cops as well, be careful all the time.
  • Loved it. Nice place to visit
  • Really beautiful i looooove it😙 and police is every where. But a lot of homeless people in there. Cool place
  • he Metropolitan Cathedral of São Paulo is the cathedral of the Archdiocese of São Paulo, Brazil. The building, which is the city’s largest Catholic church, has a crypt so big it’s basically its own underground church. The massive crypt is located under the main altar. The vast hall, which is supported by beautiful Gothic-style arches and columns, is decorated with marble sculptures that depict the history of the biblical figures Job and Saint Jerome. São Paulo’s bishops, archbishops, and other historically important people are buried within. It’s the final resting place for people like Father Diogo Feijó, who was a regent of Brazil during Emperor Dom Pedro II’s 19th-century reign and Bartolomeu Lourenço de Gusmão, a visionary and the creator of an 18th-century airship design. The crypt also houses the giant brass tomb of Chief Tibiriçá, a 16th-century native who converted to Christianity and helped the Portuguese Jesuits colonize São Paulo. Construction on the neo-Gothic cathedral began in 1913 and lasted for four decades. Over 800 tons of rare marble were used in its making. Everything except the towers was completed in time for the city’s 400th anniversary in 1954. Despite having a Renaissance-style dome, the cathedral is still known as the world’s fourth largest neo-Gothic temple. It’s the main house of worship for the parish of Our Lady of the Assumption of São Paulo, which was created on August 10, 1591.
  • One of the biggest cathedral in the city, neo-gothic style, can hold up to 8000 people, there's guided tours typically offered on Sundays. The surrounding area looks a bit dodgy, visit during the day and stay away from baggers
