Go to block F at 10am or 3pm to queue for the free entry to the top of the building (opens at 10:30am and 3:30pm). We got about 20mins at the rooftop to see and take photos of the city of Sao Paulo.

Probably the most iconic building in Sao Paulo and yes, another Oscar Niemeyer design. Wrapped up for restoration but the typical S-wave is still visible. Not open for visits during weekends.

This is an iconic mark in Sao Paulo. The arquitecture and place is so Sao Paulo. Go for a nice walk around the area and site down for a caipirinha and coxinhas at Bar Dona Onça.

The Copan Building is definitely one of the biggest and well known landmarks in Sao Paulo. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer (designed the capital of Brazil - Brasilia as well), it is definitely a pioneer style in modem architecture in Brazil.

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
