Martinelli Building, Sao Paulo

(4.6/5 based on 750+ 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.

  • Unfortunately we just go up in the building and there was no tour. It was just a lookout point in the city. I came here, I believe that in 2011, and a guide explained to us so excited about the place, the story ... a shame that such a beautiful place and especially to the history of the city do not keep this information culture (when we got off the building we were informed that the "stories counter" would be there ... But we went up exactly at the time of the beginning of the tour, the 11:00, and there wasn't any instruction/guide or there was concern about it.

  • Has a lot of history, it's worth the search. Wealth, bankruptcy, clinic of clandestine, drugs and drinks aboard, prostitution, death. Stay right in the center of São Paulo. Open to the public from Monday to Friday with a monitor for a visit with 360 degree views. Unfortunately, the day I went, it was not possible to climb due to an internal event. From what I understand, has queue for the 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!
