São Paulo is the largest city in the Southern Hemisphere and the third largest city in the Americas. Founded in 1554 by Jesuit priests, it features the beautiful colonial-era architecture you have come to expect of Brazil with a backdrop of modern high-rises. Nicknamed Sampa, the city is famous for its food, culture, and nightlight; there are over 100 museums and more than 6,000 pizza places to choose from! Street markets are a must while in São Paulo, and a stroll down Beco do Batman (Batman Alley) offers a look at vibrant street art. For a more traditional view, stop at Pinacoteca, the oldest art museum in town. A walk through the palms at Jardim da Luz provides a moment of peaceful respite to balance your time in the city of Sampa.
