Rua Álvares Penteado, 112 | Centro
Wednesday to Monday from 9am to 9pm
The impressive former headquarters of the Bank of Brazil in Centro is one of São Paulo’s main cultural centers. With theatre, cinema, exhibitions, a café and a very respected and professional curatorial team, the CCBB must be on every culture buff’s radar when in town. Combine a visit with an exploration of the gentrifying area and you will be surprised at how great this neighborhood, the Centro, once was and how fast it is turning into the talk of the town, not only for hipsters and alternatives.
