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...more

I have been to museums in a few different countries, but this was my first time to MASP. I live in Rio and I had only traveled to SP for business. When I decide to spend a weekend in SP, I decided that I needed...More
This is one of the best art museums in the world. The display is really innovative and allows you to walk around the entire art work which is suspended on clear glass panels. The exhibition has artwork of some of the most renowned European and...More
Interesting layout and curation (chronological, glass-backed, information on the reverse). Some standout work from South American artists (siguieros, rivera, portenary), but the European pieces are second rate (save the Francis Bacon and Degas sculpture - fantastic additions). Go Tuesday (it’s free), but go early to...More
I visited on a tuesday and entrance was free. There was a temporary collection on the first floor which wasn't really my style. Second floor though houses a nice collection of art from all over the world. There was even Belgian art (Rubens).

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
through the antiquities fair at Dom Orione Square or visiting the “Brazilian Caminito”, a version of the Argentinian street complete with colorful buildings. Bela Vista is also home to the traditional samba school “Vai-Vai”. Buy a ticket to a rehearsal and get a taste of what Carnival is like.
