On the 19th (Sat), delve into the lush surroundings at Parque Estadual da Cantareira - Nucleo Pedra Grande. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple of Solomon, then examine the collection at Museu da Imigração do Estado de São Paulo, then see the interesting displays at Afro Brazil Museum, and finally admire the masterpieces at Modern Art Museum of Sao Paulo.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Sao Paulo fast, fun, and easy.
