The São Paulo Metropolitan Cathedral (Portuguese: Catedral Metropolitana de São Paulo), also known as the See Cathedral (Portuguese: Catedral da Sé), is the cathedral of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of São Paulo, Brazil. As of 2013, the Metropolitan Archbishop of the archdiocese was Cardinal Odilo Pedro Scherer. Its construction, in Neo-Gothic style, began in 1913 and ended four decades later. It was ready for its dedication on the 400th anniversary of the foundation of the then humble villa of São Paulo by Chief or Cacique Tibiriçá and the Jesuit priests Manuel da Nóbrega and José de Anchieta. Despite having a Renaissance-style dome, the São Paulo Metropolitan Cathedral is considered by some to be the 4th largest neo-gothic cathedral in the world.

This cathedral has an amazing architecture. Rich in details. You must see it if you are visiting the old downtown Sao Paulo. That been said, however, be aware of pickpockets around that area, most of them are just homeless but most of them will take your stuff away if they see an opportunity (this is not only a problem in that location but in the hole old downtown)
Well maintained cathedral in a beautiful neo-gothic style. Maybe one of the few buildings in this styles out of Europe. It was amazing to hear the organs during the mass. The crypt below the church is also very interesting. Be careful, though, with the surroundings, the area near the church have a lot of homeless people. Although there are many cops as well, be careful all the time.
It's an amazing and beautiful place to visit, independent of your faith or religion.
Really beautiful i looooove it😙 and police is every where. But a lot of homeless people in there. Cool place
Loved it. Nice place to visit
What an awesome place! The architecture, the whole building itself is a masterpiece! Unfortunatelly it's not finished (there would be more details in the towers but they stopped many years ago with no idea if they'll resume it later) Anyway it's the place in São Paulo where most worth the visit!
I love the juxtaposition of this cathedral - beautiful and serene on the inside; but, as soon as you exit, it’s a war zone and you don’t feel comfortable stopping to take a photo outside. Amazing stain glass windows and unlike many other cathedrals I’ve visited across Brazil, this one had many active parishioners in the pews, asking for forgiveness and probably for protection from the shady characters waiting outside
Beautiful new-gothic Cathedral. Massive and magnificent 😍
A beautiful holy place to go in the downtown São Paulo, I really recommend, but take care around it, there are a lot of weird people nearby...
