  • With all the respect that the place deserves, it is a beautiful weekend tour. Place of great peace, even forgetthat one is in São Paulo, with the noisy Consolation right next door. Beautiful sculptures in various tombs, it is almost an art museum. In addition, it is possible to visit tombs of several illustrious personalities, such as Monteiro Lobato, among others. Recommend.

  • 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.
