if you like peaceful atmosphere this is where you want to hide from crowded streets and the heat. it is really nice church with amazing fasade and fabulous stain windows and huge doors. The front stairs are full of poor people and the square is crowded with beggers and I even had conversaion with one of two when I was taking pictures.

So you have to go there! Do not recomended to turists, specially at night when drugs dealers circulate the place. A tipical shame of brazilian's authority Watch out!

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 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.

This cathedral you visit only if you go for a strole in central São Paulo. You can sit inside and just relax and look around or meditate.
