About
Occupying the historic headquarters of Brazil's largest bank, the CCBB features an ever-changing program of art exhibitions, photography, theater, documentaries and feature films, and other engaging cultural manifestations. The building itself is a Baroque jewel, situated in the old financial district of São Paulo, and avant-garde events, such as a recent blaxploitation film retrospective, keep the CCBB on every hip Paulistano's cultural agenda.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood:
Sé, which derives its name from Sé Square, is a central neighbourhood in historic São Paulo. Close by, the Law School, the Museum of the Court of Justice and the Metropolitan Cathedral offer inspiring architecture. If you are looking for cultural activities, head to Caixa Cultural and check the schedule. In the area there is a popular pedestrian street called “Rua Direita”, one of the first streets in the region, which today marks the crowded perimeter. Sé is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.
How to get there
  • Sé • 4 min walk
  • São Bento • 4 min walk

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place is nice for its arquitecture, exibitions, music, theatre and a whole range of cultural initiatives. Also, there is a nice and cozy coffee shop with specialty coffee and sweets. It is beautiful outside and inside and it is worth a visit.

A trip worth the detour. This space offers excellent art exhibitions (mostly modern art), several the same time usually.

This cultural centre in the old city centre of São Paulo is a real archictetural gem. I´ve been there twice, and this time to see the Paul Klee´s exhibition. It was a very well organized exhibition with the material from the artist´s museum in Berna. In general this centre offers exhibitions and movies for free and it is an amazing opportunity to know works from international artists.

As soon as you walk into CCBB, you think you are in Gringotts because of the façade, and indeed it used to be a branch of the Brazilian bank (still running but not in this location, although you find its ATM inside). The rooms are small but enough to enter you into the atmosphere of the current exhibit. You will be amazed by the architecture and the art in there.

It's always good to bring some culture on these web days. My kids were happy and amazed to see art and some of them were interactive.
CCBB always has good programs. If you are visiting Sao Paulo or looking for some fun, take a look on the website.

In the Centro Velho there are old buildings that tell their story. It is possible to visit downtown with a free guided tour also.
