A guided walk through downtown São Paulo introduces you to the city’s historic landmarks. The tour is based on the triangle formed by the constructions of three religious orders that played a fundamental role in the first centuries of the city’s existence: the Benedictines, the Franciscans and the Carmelites.
The Guided Tour through the Historic Center has already received more than 3 thousand visitors since 2019, and will be held again from June. It takes about two hours to walk through places, buildings and monuments of great importance in the formation of São Paulo, which were relevant in different periods of the country’s history, from the time of the colony to the republic.
The tour starts at the mall next to São Bento subway station, goes towards Pateo do Collegio, passes through Solar da Marquesa de Santos, Largo São Francisco, Largo do Café and the São Bento Monastery.
