  Praça Ramos de Azevedo
by mvtouring

Begin your tour at the Edifício Copan, designed by Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. Farther up Avenida Ipiranga is the city's tallest building, the Edifício Itália (you might want to return at the end of the day for a terrific view of the city from the bar or the restaurant on the 41st floor). Continue north along the avenue to the Praça da República. Cross Ipiranga and walk down the pedestrians-only Rua Barão de Itapetininga, with its many shops and street vendors.
Follow it to the neobaroque Teatro Municipal, in the Praça Ramos de Azevedo. Head east across the square to the Viaduto do Chá, a monumental overpass above the Vale do Anhangabaú -- the heart of São Paulo. At the end of this viaduct, turn right onto Rua Líbero Badaró and follow it to the baroque Igreja de São Francisco de Assis. A short walk along Rua Benjamin Constant will bring you to the Praça da Sé, the city's true center and the site of the Catedral Metropolitana da Sé.
