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

Having heard and read so much about the MASP before my visit I was really looking forward to this, and I'm glad to say I was not disappointed. Firstly, the architecture is astonishing, both inside and out. Even if there wasn't any art inside, the...More

The building in itself is an eyecatcher on Avenida Paulista: four red pillars connected by two long concrete beams, also painted red, which are holding a glass and concrete structure above a big free space. Alone this piece of architecture from the 1960's in the...More

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
