Is important part of São Paulo's history but don't wait that much. When walking by the downtown area you can visit and continue.

Small but very beautifully ornate ! The mass on sundays are very busy due to the live chore ! If visiting from nov to jan. please don't forget to pass at the monchs bakery and get the most rare and exquisit "Panettone", Ítalo-Brazilian Xmas sweet fruit cake, it is gorgeous !!!

Nice place to visit. They also have a bakery, very famous. Very busy place on Sundays, due to the gregorian chants.

The monastery is also a school, a university, a bakery and one of the most important and famous churches in SP. It is constantly renovated, which makes it worth the visit, although it is often blocked by renovation. Do not miss the bakery products, especially the Santa Escolástica cake, a delicious and very rich cake.

One of my favorite things to do on weekends in Sao Paulo... when I do not go out until late at night on Saturday. The Sunday morning Gregorian choir makes you feel in heaven.

It was quite interesting to see the Monastery: beautiful interior. However, I would not call the area safe: you need to be careful. I would recommend to visit with someone who speaks local language. Unfortunately, I missed Gregorian Chants.

A island of solitude and calmness and loniness in the heart of the megalopolis. Good for praying and eating at weekends breakfast. It worth a visit!

The Benedictines established this school years and years ago. What stands there now is rebuilt. The Gregorian Chant is something I wish to hear and participate in the future.
