It is the largest city not only in Brazil but also in the western and southern hemispheres and home to the world’s 8th largest population. São Paulo is the business and industrial heart of the country and most popular for its large helicopter fleet and multitude of skyscrapers!
But away from the bustling and maddening metropolitan area is the Museu do Ipiranga (also known as Museu do Paulista), the oldest museum in São Paulo and an oasis of green that provides a totally different feel.
