The cathedral is gorgeous inside and outside. But the most curious thing about it was a Fusquinha placed in one of its sides (it was the prize for a riffle).

It is a great and big church, especially if you considerer the size of the city. Of course there is a park just in front of it, with a lot of small shops.

It's a very nice church with great architecture. They also hosts numerous events that are good even if you are not religious. If you're ever in the city it's definitely worth visiting.

Nice cathedral to visit and calm your mind with tranquility around the place. Beautiful glass strain and decoration inside the cathedral. For sure, it is a good place for either single, couple or family to visit.

We went to Sunday Mass here - it was beautiful. It was a vibrant Mass with excellent music, that was aided by the amazing surrounds. You will need a bit of time to see everything in the Cathedral - well worth the visit

It's a big building, simbol of the coffee golden era in Brazil and speccialy in this part of São Paulo. Despite its references to the european style, this Church is full of Brazilian culture a d art.

I spent way too much time here and around the Cathedral. Inside is definitely European influences throughout the artwork, architecture, and other things.
