This old train station still operating and it is beautiful! Situated across from Pinacoteca you should stop. Just be careful entering the building and using your cell phone for pictures.

The inside feels like the works of Eiffel with lots of iron, the outside is nice, vibrantly orange. But - it may feel shady at times because there are lots of homeless. From there to the Pinacoteca, don't go straight - change sidewalk first!

Built next to Luz Garden, the city's first public garden, Luz Station, built with imported materials from England, stands out in the landscape for the beauty of its architecture. Its clock tower gives a nostalgic look to the landscape.

I'm by no means a prude, but this station was gross, all the main entrances had prostitutes soliciting in the doorway. I'm not against people trying to make a living, it's just that the whole place feels dangerous. The parque was even worse. I'm fit...More

The architecture is from the end of the XIX century. People say they brought the steel structure from London and they only assembled it in here. I find it so beautiful that my wife and I decide to have a pre wedding photo shoot in...More

Very nice construction. The station was built in the late 19th century. In the first decades of the 20th century, it was the main entrance to the city, a fact that gave it a major economic relevance, because the majority of the coffee from Santos...More

A cool old train station. In my opinion, it's not a destination in and of itself, though it's worth checking out. The Museum of the Portuguese Language is here (on the side facing the Pinocateca) but it was closed when I was there. As noted,...More

I recommend to visit this place between 10am and 2pm, and after 09pm until midnight, because in the other times there's too much people using the public transportation for work and to go home. So, it's possible to have some problems with thefts, crowded places...More

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
center, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
