  • Lovely
  • A gift from the Klabin family to a small house where SP lived Emma Klabin, a personality of rare erudition. The garden is the Burle Max.

  • An oasis in the city of São Paulo. While not a great Museum is a pleasant space for those who love art and decoration, with a delightful garden to relax.
