A place I took friends when they come to visit. Free, usually no lines, great view. Keep an eye ( better TWO) on your children: the walls are low and easy to climb on them!!!!

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.

Martinelli Building is not the tallest building in SP but is the tallest open for visitors. It's free and you'll find a beautiful lookout of the whole city, even the skyline of the Paulista Avenue. I was there in an afternoon of a week day...More

It's a historical building where you can visit the rooftop. The rooftop was home to a very wealthy family in the past, so it's a place rich in details to see. It has a gorgeous view of the city and it's not near as packed...More

Its a cooll place to visit, specially if you can go up and out . The view of Sao Pauli is amazing. It has curious history to the building. Worth a visit.

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
