Incredibly, there has been suggestions of awarding this place a UNESCO status. I can't possibly see how; the whole village is a wreck, the walls are covered with graffiti, everything is falling apart. There are mongrel dogs all over the place, and the streets are covered with dog poo. You can sense the village's historical past, but that has been overwhelmed by neglect and abuse. It took us more than 2 h to get there, and we couldn't wait to get out. What a waste of time.

Pinacoteca is a museum of visual arts, with emphasis on Brazilian production since the nineteenth century. It belongs to the São Paulo State Secretariat of Culture. It was founded in 1905 by the State Government of São Paulo and it is the oldest art museum in the city. It is installed in the old building of the Arts and Crafts College, designed in the late nineteenth century by the architect Ramos de Azevedo. In the 1990's it underwent an extensive renovation with the architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha's project. Pinacoteca hosts about thirty Exhibitions and receives about 450,000 visitors yearly. The museum's main focus is to promote to general public a better experience with visual arts with its collection, building and historical relevance.
Whenever I’m at São Paulo Pinacoteca, Emanoel Araújo always comes to my mind. He was crucial to turn this museum into international standards. I love the Pedro Américo canvas, Ernst Papf children depiction, and the whole ensemble of painting illustrating Rio. The building itself is a masterpiece. Pay a visit if you like history of art.

The Emerald heart of an oftentimes gray city, São Paulo's Parque do Ibirapuera offers respite from the urban madness among cool, shady trees and mentally-stimulating structures. Running trails, bike paths, and yoga and capoeira sessions let locals and visitors alike keep fit, while a clutch of museums and galleries — such as the museums of Modern and Contemporary Art, all designed by master Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer — gives the brain a good workout. The impressive Museu Afro Brasil and fiery Auditório Ibirapuera are two of the park's treasures.
I paid two visits to the park during a recent trip to Sao Paulo. The first visit was on a Sunday afternoon, and the second visit was a weekday morning. I am an avid runner so I ran in the park both times.
Ibirapuera is a very nice park; clean, with lots of paved as well as unpaved paths. There are vendors selling coconut milk and other goodies, and there is also a constant police presence to help keep things safe. The park was pretty crowded on Sunday, as one might suspect, with lots of families having picnics, volleyball games, bicyclists and runners. Getting a good run in was a bit problematic on Sunday mainly due to the sheer number of people in the park. The paths were pretty crowded so I had to run around a lot of groups of people while avoiding cyclists.
There are a number of restroom facilities spaced throughout the park, although I did not use them so I can't comment on their quality.
For cyclists, one nice feature are dedicated bike lanes through much of the park, although on Sunday it would have been difficult to get a good ride in because there is so much pedestrian traffic constantly crossing the bike lanes.
During the week, the park was very mellow and uncrowded and I was able to get in a nice 4 mile run with minimal distractions.
My only real criticism of the park is that the network of paths and trails aren't well marked, and even using Google Maps, it was hard to figure out a good running route. That said, it wasn't a huge deal since it's fairly easy to just set off and run in the general direction, finding your way around by dead reckoning with occasional help from Google. There is a path that runs around the outside of the park, more or less, but it's not continuous so you wind up running on the outside sidewalk for a bit. Again, not a big deal but it does take a little more thinking as you're running so that you choose the right way to go.
One more tip. I was staying at the Grand Mercure hotel, which advertises itself as being adjacent to the park. Technically it is, however actually getting from the hotel to the park is not terribly straightforward, You wind up having to cross several roads while following pedestrian paths that are not marked at all. There is a nice bright yellow pedestrian bridge that, once you spot it, helps with figuring out which way to go, and once you've figured it out the first time, it's not hard. Unfortunately the hotel personnel were no help whatsoever in finding the park, actually sending me the wrong direction when I asked for directions. Google Maps to the rescue!
All in all, Ibirapuera is a very nice, clean, safe park in the middle of very busy Sao Paulo. If you're looking for a nice place to relax, unwind, and get in some exercise, I highly recommend it.

Teatro com boa instação fisica, bem conservado, pequeno mas bastante aconchegante. Com essas boas características e baseado no que vejo quando passo na frente do Teatro, a menos que esteja sendo usado em eventos/shows não abertos ao publico ou que a divulgação não esteja na frente do Teatro, tenho a impressão que é sub-utizado.

I went there with a family I visited in Brazil, and I think it is a private area, but I am not 100 % sure.
It seemed very fancy, and was quiet and clean, and felt very secure.
There were different areas on the beach with chairs, sunbeds and parasols for the different apartemen-tblocks and apartements.
The beach was very clean too, and it was comfortable to lay on, the sand did not get stuck everywhere. The waves was quite big, but not too scary.
There were food-carts with options for coconuts, hot corn, pastels and fried shrimps and drinks. Quite expencive.
There were also a couple carts with beachwear, blankets and beach-toys.
Some people went around selling jewlery, grilled cheese and fruits.
It was a lovely place, I really enjoyed it, but I don't think I could afford it on my own.

Housed in a stunning example of eclectic industrial architecture, the Mercado Municipal de São Paulo — nicknamed the Mercadão — has thousands of food items on offer, literally from soup to nuts. Lush tropical and temperate fruits from every season, choice cuts of meats and fish, and hearty prepared foods,such as the renowned and enormous mortadella (bologna) Sandwich, complete the market's catalog of wares, all for sale in a boisterous, welcoming atmosphere. The surrounding area can be a bit sketchy, but the sights and flavors more than make up for the journey downtown.
