Martinelli Building, Sao Paulo

(4.6/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • You should go to the side of the building, door number 35, is for free and it is nice to have a view from there. 
  • One of the coolest points of São Paulo, not only by history that loads (the luxury "crap") but for the view, you can have a beautiful view of 360° degrees of Sao Paulo, a pity only that does not work on the weekends. Get there early cause the queue to enter used to be great

  • 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!
