  • This is a must-see if you were visiting Sao Paulo. The architecture is breathtaking and the interior is beautiful. Regardless of your religious affiliation, this is a very cool experience. Little kids...  more »
  • It is beautiful and it is opposite the ground Zero of the city. The Cathedral square is always crowded and sometimes you have homeless people in front of the Church, which ends up causing the Church always have enough people. Inform yourself about the guided tours of the crypt of the Cathedral. :)

  • Live in São Paulo since childhood, but still sometimes surprised by visiting places I've ever been to hundreds of times. And you know what is the best of it? Is to forget that knows the location and be a tourist. Sounds silly, but it's not. If you've ever been in cathedrals in Europe, or anywhere else, do the following: 1 forget I have visited the Cathedral, if you already have viditado, of course. 2-look for similarities and differences in the whole scenario. Passers-by, trade, streets, mteansito, surroundings and etc. 3-Once inside the Cathedral, compare the stained glass, the brightness, the screens, the people, their actions, speech, is all I can remember. 4-close your eyes for a moment and "listen" to the "voice" of the Cathedral talking with you! Sounds silly, but we have 5 senses and generally only give importance to what we see, and didn't even look good because we're in a hurry to see everything. Try to feel the scents or odors, sounds, feel the textures, try the nearby foods anyway, do a full tour, and not just visual. Good ride!

  • Catedral em estilo gótico. Visite a cripta.
  • Nice chruch, different and a big one. You can cover many places around it. Go for free walking tour near republica and they will cover this.
  • Cool architecture. Worth walking around to see.
  • Nice building and the view from the top of the steps is great for a photo; however, the interior is not that stunning compared to other cathedrals of similar size and you get a creepy feeling having to step over passed-out homeless people that lie on the stairway.
  • one of the most impressive examples of neogothic architecture in the world... great square just outside the cathedral
