Overview

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.

Check out what exhibition is currently been displayed. This antique mansion in the middle of the old downtown center holds some very important exhibitions and you can see some quite interesting art displays

CCBB always offers the best exhibitions in Sao Paulo. But even if you find the current exhibition not that interesting (almost impossible) you should pay a visit to the building that dates from 1901 and it's the 5th most visited cultural institution in Brazil.

There are no permanent expositions, nevertheless there is also something interesting to see. Check on their websites to check what is on now. It is in the city center, so it is easy to find and they have a nice a cafè inside.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
center, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
