“Lovely church!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I brought a Chinese friend here and we stood in the entryway for a good long while as I explained the meaning of the various parts of the church. There are better churches in Latin/South America, but in Sao Paulo -- particularly downtown -- you're not going to see better. A nice visit for both believers and non-believers.

“Brazilian historic site”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Lovely place - not to easy to get to as it is next on one of the throughways in a very busy area of São Paulo. Building is beautiful and so are the works in it.

“Nice place to go just if you are nearby”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

The monastery São Bento is known for its grandeur and fame in central Sao Paulo. It has over 400 years of history. The monastery always had great influence in the city and was built Benedictine monastery. He has an impressive instrument and which is played on Sundays at 8:30 am and at 10:00 am, and this with Gregorian chant. Monday through Friday at 7 am he offers Gregorian chant and Saturdays only at 6am. The church is open to visitors Monday through Friday from 6am to 6pm (except Thursday which just reopened as of 11:30 am) and Saturdays and Sundays from 6-12am and 4-6pm. It's worth checking, but no guided tours and maybe be a problem for tourists who doesnt know Portuguese language, but it's worth the historic building.

“Sao Paulo History”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is a place that is part of Sao Paulo history with antique building. You can go to take a breakfast with bread cooked in the restaurant inside the building. Good one.
