São Paulo city!

Beautiful, wealthy, intellectual, inclusive, vibrant, sports-loving, cultural, sentimental, romantic, modern, sophisticated, self-confident and professional, São Paulo is all of these and more: no single adjective can accurately describe this world-renowned megacity.

Forged from a melting pot of nationalities, cultures, beliefs, philosophies and ideals, this huge and pioneering metropolis is truly cosmopolitan by vocation and choice. It's Italian, German, Jewish, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, French, African, Arab, Spanish, Latino, Brazilian and Paulistano. These and so many other facets are reflected in the architecture of the buildings, the streets, the refined tastes of the city's culinary delights and in the styles and mannerisms of a people who never stop as they boldly create the city's history, day after day.

The grandeur of São Paulo is demonstrated in many ways. The city houses Latin America's largest number of hotel and health care facilities, and is also Brazil's cultural centre. It is considered one of the world's dining capitals, is recognized worldwide as a leading destination for major events, trade fairs and expositions, and is home to the country's finest academic centres and research institutes.

São Paulo is one of few places where the past and present are seamlessly interwoven. The city has witnessed events from Brazilian Independence to political and cultural revolutions and pro-democracy protests. It is also home to hundreds of cinemas, museums, theatres, cultural heritage sites, parks, performance halls, amusement and theme parks, restaurants, bars, hotels, event spaces, street fairs, shopping centres and specialized retail districts.

Each year about ten million visitors come to do business, go shopping or simply enjoy the city's world class culture. Here, they experience an around-the-clock metropolis and a lifestyle that mixes work and pleasure like they were two sides of the same coin. Capital city of a state the size of the United Kingdom, with a population similar to Spain's, and generating almost half of Brazil's economic output, São Paulo has become Brazil's foremost tourism destination. That's why we proudly invite you to:

Come and visit São Paulo,
It's all the best!
