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.

  • I visited the Martinelli during the journey. In addition to the beauty of the building itself, and the view it provides, interesting to hear the story of Giuseppe Martinelli as told by a former employee of the building. I don't remember his name, but the way he narrated the story was fantastic.

  • Visit the Martinelli building's terrace was very interesting! Yielded great shots because you can view from all angles the old Center of São Paulo, not to mention the beauty of architecture. Worth also watch the speech of a man who was employee many years of building and account details of the history of the construction of the building and its intended Earl Martinelli.

  • See São Paulo from the top is always something special, a city so great is always full of news, and the terrace of the Martinelli building is a great place to glimpse the city center, the visitor is well free to circulate, take pictures, learn a little about the history of the city, and photos with the building of Banespa to the bottom are pretty cool.

  • A vista lá de cima é incrível.
  • 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!
