Sao Paulo - Metropolitan Area

Sign in to follow this  




Sao Paulo is the largest city in the southern hemisphere and Brazil's financial center. Its metropolitan area consists of almost 20 million people. Apartment buildings and skyscrapers can be seen for miles and never seem to end. The city is so dense that even the airports are tucked in the middle of dense areas. Let's take a look at this mega city.


Strange and quirky architecture along Midtown's Paulista Avenue.

This is Sao Paulo's financial district.


The Banespa Building in Sao Paulo's old business district.


Edificio Italia and Oscar Niemeyer's wavy Copan Building.


Ipiranga Museum is probably one of Sao Paulo's prettiest buildings. It faces a grand park.


Sao Paulo's newest landmark is the Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge over the Pinheiros River.


Estacao da Luz (Luz Train Station) takes passengers throughout the city.


Sao Paulo has slums. Here we see a pretty dodgy area, many of these apartments are abandoned.

I'm wondering who was the one who rated this CJ below of 5 stars... The first pic is really awesome, and I see lots of custom content I had never seen before... Is this stuff from SimCity Brazil?
