“Nice decorations”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The Cathedral has some nice architecture and decorations on the inside. It's the main part of the central part of Sao Paulo and outside the cathedral is a fairly nice square. Although it's full of all sorts of shady characters so not worth hanging around for too long.

“Beautiful architecture”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Beautiful cathedral. Worth a visit if you are in Sao Paulo. The Cathedral is huge and Beautifully decorated. It is a neo gothic style architecture. Surrounding buildings could use some face lifting.

“Interesting architecture”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

Cathedral de Se looks like a typical gothic cathedral, however the inside is impressive. the decorations are beautiful. From outside it does not look that huge, but when you go inside you understand it's quite huge :) I like the buildings that make you suprise when you go inside. It has (probably golden) shiny decorations, and nice rose windows that exist in gothic churchs. When you go to Sao paulo you shouldn't miss that place.

Around the cathedral is a nice area, lively and central. Sao Paulo is a very nice city overall.
