Martinelli Building, Sao Paulo

4.4
The first skyscraper to be built in Brazil, the brick and concrete Martinelli Building remains one of the most significant constructions in Sao Paulo. Inaugurated in 1929, the building is 130 m (427 ft) tall, and was once the tallest skyscraper in Latin America. The 26th floor serves as home to an elegant terrace and Italian-style villa, originally constructed by the Martinelli family as a residence in order to prove to locals that the building would not collapse.

  • One of the most beautiful walks of São Paulo for sure. The view is indescribable and the guides are very friendly, tell the story of the building and facts about facts that occurred there. I want to go more often when you reopen.
