Martinelli Building, Sao Paulo
(4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Martinelli Building on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Sao Paulo tourist route planner.

  • All very organized. The visit to the lookout has an appointment and start promptly. The view is amazing and worth it even for those afraid of heights because it is sill is high. Loved it! Would come back for sure.

  • I love the Makan! The visit is much cooler than it was in banespão. There's a famous guide that tells the story of the building very well, you are always treated well and the view is beautiful. I think it's a must for anyone who wants to meet SP.

  • I love meeting new places in São Paulo, we travel to other cities and forget their own points of interest of our dear SP. This building is awesome, the view is beautiful and the architecture too, it's great to get some professional photos. Search before, as it has time and day to visit.

  • A vista lá de cima é incrível.
  • Stunning view of the concrete jungle! A must do! Check the time of the tours...
  • Amazing view of São Paulo. This is one of the highest building of the city. They have a partnership with Heineken where you can get a pass to a party promoted by them.
  • Next to the entrance, on the ground floor, there's a wonderful coffee shop called Martinelli. It's good quality and a nice feeling of the old classic Sao Paulo.
  • Não deixe de visitar o terraço!
