Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view. The neighbourhood also hosts assorted museums and has a strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a variety of good dining places and its own Municipal Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables, fruits and some special events. Outside the main subway stations you can experience the busy streets, but you just need to walk a few blocks to get back the residential serenity of the area.
The museum is small when compared to European ones, but not at all bad on a local basis. Reasonably organzed and well maintained, it doesn´t charge for entry. One advantage of its size is that it is fascinating enough for smaller kids, and small enough not to tire them too quickly.
I visited this place once before, to see the zoological museum and the nearby aquarium. The palace also has a museum, but that is closed for renovation, until 2022.
The large gardens in front of the palace provide a very relaxed atmosphere. There are some food stands on the road in front, and at the other side the gardens continue...
Beautiful building, garden and the territory. Of course you cannot compare with the European museums and palaces but still not bad. Maybe one of the oldest architectural building. Lots of renovations were going on.

"The craddle of Brazilian independence"
reviewed 6 March 2020 by Heitor L
This is a "must go" place, specially for the Brazilians or those interested in the Brazilian history. The monument is in the place where Pedro, the 1st, declared independence of Brazil from Portugal in 1822. Pedro, the 1st was the first Emperor of Brazil who, late also become, king of Portugal. Therefore, the Brazilian history always was interwined with the...
Judging by the information in other reviews, I'm assuming that this is related to the Paulista museum as I couldn't see any other museum when there.
This museum is currently closed for renovations, but the whole area is stunning and worth visiting even without the museum.
When you come to São Paulo and if you like paellas, visit Paellas Pepe. You have a choice to pay R$69,90 for the regular paella and eat as much as you want or order “a la carte”. Either way it’s totally worthy going.
This charming ice cream shops sells by the weight. So you can choose as many flavors as you'd like. And trust there are more than enough. It's very delicious and great. Threat yourself to many interesting flavors.
We really liked it. It is very well decorated and charming, makes you feel confortable.
There a lot of good pasta options, the main one is a spaghetti made inside a huge grana padano cheese. Very tasty and its so cool to see it being made. They bring a little car and make it in your front!! So nice!!
Having lunch at Grão Ipiranga is hard for those undecided. The options are in great numbers and tastes. Do watch out for card mismatches when asking for drink or coffee.
Their pizza, esfiha and cakes are also very good. Try a piece of the bem-casado cake, if you have a sweet tooth.
