Paulo's catholic community. Since its completion around 1967 the cathedral has remained a principal piece of neo-gothic architecture and design in the area, and is among the largest neo-gothic cathedrals on earth. The seat of the Archdiocese of Sao Paulo, Catedral Metropolitana utilizes nearly a thousand tons of marble, features twin ninety-two meter flanking towers, and contains an underground crypt complex thought to be nearly as extensive as the entirety of the above-ground structure.

This picturesque blend of Neo-Gothic and Renaissance styles structure is the largest and most important cathedral built and consecrated in the 19th century in São Paulo. Its beautiful crypt is decorated with marble sculptures and holds the tombs of all city’s bishops and archbishops.

Simply beatiful! Neo-Ghotic architecture in Brazil is just amazing, and if possible is good to find someone to explain the story of this place.

The Catedral da Sé is a zero mile marker monument in São Paulo, intended as the initial milestone from which all road distances in the state should be reckoned when it was built. It's a gothic construction with green roofs and masses are regular. At the plaza outside, you can see the little monument where the zero mile marker is set.

Beautiful cathedral in the heart of the city. Be careful when around here - there are chances you will be mugged if you get too distracted.

Catedral linda e com inspiração no estilo neogótico. Vale a pena visitar a cripta que custa R$ 7 e é onde esta enterrado o índio Tibiriçá e o padre que ajudou a fundar SP.

Uma das mais belas estruturas do centro de São Paulo. Só é um pouco perigoso o entorno.
