Sao Paulo is a city that is in the southeastern part of Brazil, and is considered the city with the largest population in Brazil. Sao Paulo was discovered on January 25, 1554 by Manuel da Nóbrega and José de Anchieta, plus ten other priests from a Jesuit college.

“People who want to see spectacular panoramic views of Sao Paulo will need to ride to the top of Banespa, which is a 161-meter high skyscraper that was built in 1939. To get to the top, everyone will need to ride an elevator to the 26th floor, then get onto another elevator and then finally climb the stairs to the observation deck.”

In the beginning, Sao Paulo was a poor and isolated village — until gold was discovered in the 1690’s in the region of Minas Gerais.

The weather in Sao Paulo is beautiful throughout the entire year. The winters are mild and mostly dry while the summers are warmer and rainy. With the location of Sao Paulo, it is possible to experience multiple seasons in one day. A cold morning can change into a hot and sunny day before the wind picks up and the temperatures drop significantly.

There are many museums in Sao Paulo including the Sao Paulo Museum of Art, the Ipiranga Museum and the Ema Gordon Klabin Cultural Foundation. The Sao Paulo Museum was founded in 1947 and the current building was built with concrete and glass in 1968. Inside the museum, people will find collections of European Art, Brazilian art, African and Asian art and antiquities. The Ipiranga Museum is a monument that opened in 1985 to honor the memory of the Independence of Brazil. It used to be a science museum, but became a history museum in 1919. There are approximately 100,00 pieces that include works of art, furniture, clothing and appliances from Brazilian history. The Ema Gordon Klabin Cultural Foundation is housed in a mansion from the 1920s. The collection of paintings includes works of art by Marc Chagall, Pompeo Batoni and Pierre Gobert.Sao Paulo

To the south of Sao Paulo is the Sao Paulo Zoo. The zoo covers 203 acres of land with more than 3,200 animals. The zoo was created in June of 1957 and it finally opened in March of 1968. People who visit the zoo can also go on a safari tour at the Zoological Park of Sao Paulo, which is right next to the zoo.
