From Rembrandt to Van Gogh, you can find everything here. The museum's way of displaying their pieces is different from any other museum I've visited.

This world class collection of paintings is worth the trip. The paintings are informally presented on glass pannels on the main hall, inviting one to roam and study them.

The MASP shows the main collection in one room. But what a room, and what a collection! The way they present the paintings is amazing. No distraction on the side. If you want to know what you see? They tell it all on the back...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
