  • Despite living more than 40 in the city, he had not yet visited this cemetery. Thanks for the ride. This necropolis is the oldest in the city, and has many tombs with Baroque architecture. Interestingly, to see how some large-sized families build huge deposits up to two floors, such as the Matarazzo family mausoleum. There are buried famous people: Libero Badaró, Antoninho da Rocha Marmo, Baron and Baronesa de Bocaína, Tarsila do Amaral, Oswald de Andrade, Paulo Vanzolini. Some deposits already have a QR code identifier that allows more detailed information about the burial. The visit is quiet, with municipal guards prowling and employees doing the security. I'd say it's... A cultural stroll.

  • Epic, gothic, not ancient but a reflection of colonial Sao Paulo
  • This cemetery is just filled with history and beautiful works of art. A number of notable Brazilians are laid to rest here, as well as some interesting folk saints, as well as ordinary citizens who elected to have their lives commemorated with really incredible head stones, scepltres, and mausoleums. Be wary near closing time, the employees have no problem locking stragglers inside and letting them call the police to be let out.
