Martinelli Building, Sao Paulo

(750+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
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.

  • This closed for reform and has no warning on the internet. I went up to her to figure out but I intend to go back

  • I live for years in Brazil, but it was only last month that I was able to visit the Martinelli. I had high expectations, however, when I arrived, I was impressed. The architecture of the terraces on a day of blue sky for fantasy scenario. Something like an Addams Family or the twilight zone. I'm dying to go back, the only problem is that the ride only takes place during the week and close at the lunch break. I guess I'll have to wait for my vacation.

  • Very pretty!! Guided tours. There's a line but is very fast. The monitors tell facts of the building. One of the oldest buildings of São Paulo is worth the visit.
