  • Great to enjoy Tomb Art. Far from being a morbid ride, is enriching meet works by major Brazilian and foreign artists. The sad side see how is burglarized. Many tombs show that suffered the action of thieves getting, a lot of them without identification plates, vases, doors. Anyway worth the ride.

  • Visit a graveyard as the Consolation is nothing morbid, not depressing. Quite the contrary. Is an open air museum, filled with works of art, such as statues, pictures, mausoleums ... a lot of people important in our history there are in eternal rest. Ex-presidents, sculptors, artists, painters, politicians. There's even on-site tours, if I'm not mistaken the 3as and Friday, in the morning. You need to schedule. Worth the visit!

  • Private visits are already very fruitful, but guided tours are amazing, we know the stories of the personalities there buried and of artists and their works wives in mausoleums and much of the history of the city itself. At the moment only guided tours on Tuesdays and Fridays at 14:00 by e-mail assessoriaimprensa@prefeitura.sp.gov.br for those who like art, culture, religion and history is the perfect place.

  • Very nice picture spot for sculpture and architecture buffs. Medium sized, very tranquil and safe. Free entrance and smartphone guided tours available. Bonus: lots of wildlife around for extra pictures.
  • a real oasis of quietude in the middle of the city. very interesting place to walk around and the many pieces of art and beautifully crafted tombs of some notorious public figures.
  • A must. Dozens of pieces of art by famous artists, a few of them by Victor Brecheret.
  • A place full of art, beauty and life. There death is more colorful and with poetry. Several artists and their works make it an artistic reference. Lack a bit of commitment by the city to protect and improve the security of this beautiful Museum/graveyard.

  • One of the most beautiful "Graveyard" of São Paulo, a true open-air museum in the city centre. For lovers of "Tubular Art" gets the hint.
