Definitely a must see when you are in São Paulo. Impressive in all of its grandeur. Great square in front of the Cathedral, the city of SP has improved the security a lot with the new mayor Doria in 2017.

Very beautifull and rich Cathedral. The main problem its the great concentration of drug addicts and beggars, making the place suscetible to be mugged

Beautiful, old, historical. The acoustics are so natural and raw here (but they use microphones- what a pity) and I love the wood pews. It's a gorgeous cathedral...located in a terrible place. It's around a dangerous, polluted, and grafity filled place. Sitting on the steps...More

This is a classic cathedral build in Gothic style. It is very big and has many beautiful mosaic windows. It is for sure worth a visit. The neighborhood it is in, is full of homeless people and begars making the walk there quite depressing. Right...More

I was amazed by the fine architecture of this chathedral. Despite its measures it give the feeling of lightness.

Sé, which derives its name from Sé Square, is a
central neighborhood in historic São Paulo. Close by,
the Law School, the Museum of the Court of Justice and
the Metropolitan Cathedral offer inspiring
architecture. If you are looking for cultural
activities, head to Caixa Cultural and check the
schedule. In the area there is a popular pedestrian
street called “Rua Direita”, one of the first streets
