Overlooking the historic square, Pátio do Colégio, is a pair of beautiful coral-coloured Neoclassical buildings occupied by the Ministry of Justice (Secretaria da Justiça). While each has a unique design, the similarities between them are no accident. They were both built by one of São Paulo's most famous engineers, Ramos de Azevedo, who also built the opera house. Building number 184, i.e. the one on the left if looking from the square, was inaugurated in 1891, originally as the Secretaria da Fazenda e do Tesouro, the Ministry of Finance. The building on the right, number 148, was completed a little earlier as the Secretaria da Agricultura, the Ministry of Agriculture.

Address: Praça Pátio do Colégio - CENTRO
