Elevated over a concrete platform used for concerts and a weekly crafts fair, the Museu de Arte de São Paulo (São Paulo Art Museum, abbreviated MASP) is itself a work of art; the building is an imposing Modernist box suspended under two bright red concrete supports. Featuring classical European names such as Gauguin, Goya and Gainsborough, the museum also holds one of the largest collections of Brazilian and other Latin American artists on the continent.

This unusual looking building houses some excellent artwork, particularly European, well worth the R15 (£4/$6) entrance fee. Monet, van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse among others are well displayed in comfortable surroundings. The modern local art on level-2 was interesting but certainly not the highlight of this...More

A museum is as good as it's exhibitions. On my visit, though curation was excellent, the actual subjects of the exhibitions didn't really strike my fancy. Also a pity is that the windows of the building are darkened or blocked, meaning you don't get the...More

The museum is closed on mondays, but if you come on tuesdays it's freeeeeee! The museum was quite smaller than we expected, but we found the exhibitions interesting. It has two floors and is located just beside Trianon-Masp metrostation, line 2-green.

I liked this gallery, although typically for Sao Paulo it has no café and the public space below the building was a bit of a wasteland. When we visited they had European art on the second floor and a collection of mainly Brazilian prints on...More

Take the mandatory lift to the top floor and the door opens on a Premier Class exhibition of European Impressionist painters, from Manet to Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh. Great works rarely if ever seen outside Brazil. A must if you are in São Paulo

Bela Vista
Known for its Italian cantinas, Bela Vista is the
place to go for great pasta. Also called “Bixiga”, the
area is an important cultural part of the city, with
the bohemian and the religious costumes of its
inhabitants on full display. In August, the large
Nossa Senhora Achiropita party fills the streets with
a variety of Italian food and music. You can
experience the liveliness of the neighbourhood walking
