Probably the most iconic building in Sao Paulo and yes, another Oscar Niemeyer design. Wrapped up for restoration but the typical S-wave is still visible. Not open for visits during weekends.

Part of the historical centre of São Paulo, República
was once a fancy residential area. República Square
holds a craft and food fair every weekend, right by
the subway entrance. Nearby, one of the
neighbourhood’s main attractions is the Italian
Building, where you can see the city from the 42nd
floor. The Copan Building also deserves a close look,
with 1,160 apartments and a huge floor area that
