The sprawling urban green space with its monuments, museums, playgrounds, gardens, trails, lakes, and performance spaces is a recreational haven for paulistanos, as well as a showcase of modern architecture and culture.

Founded in 1905, this revered institution is particularly renowned for its superb collection of 19th-century paintings and sculptures, as well as famous works by leading Brazilian Modernist artists.
