Edifícios, São Paulo: 8 reviews and 16 photos

  The "brazilian" Empire State called Banespa by RTL
by RafaelTheSecond

It is big, I cannot deny, it is absolutely urban, this everyone could see. São paulo has the gorgeous force of a big city, and in some corners you would believe that you are walking in New York!;)

On the top of the building you can see the flag of São Paulo gladly waving in the heights of the Piratininga Ski.

The real name is Edificio Altino Arantes, constructed in 1947 and it was the highest building in São Paulo for 20 years, you can have an amazing view of the city if you reach the top, amazing cosntruction and it is the head office of BANESPA, together with Santander Bank is one of the msot important banks in town!

This is the Banespa building

Directions: Close to the famous Anhagabau Valley, use the subway station with the same name!;)
