This market is a must to anyone who comes to São Paulo for a visit. First for the building itself, interesting piece from the beginning of 20th century and secondly for fruits, vegetables, dates, fish, meat and everything you find there.

this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
