Be seduced by the culture and picturesque streets of Embu das Artes; a charming town famous for being a refuge for great Brazilian artists. What are you waiting for?
Day Trip to Embu das Artes
To the south-west of Sao Paulo lies a small town that has become a tourist attraction for all art lovers. Embu das Artes is sure to impress, plus it is only 17 miles (27 km) from the city.
When we reach the elegant town, we'll embark on a walking tour around its old town and the most emblematic places, such as the Art and Handicraft Fair, one of the city's main attractions, which creates a real hub of activity every weekend. You're sure to love it! This town has been welcoming artists since 1937 when Cássio M'Boy, sculptor of religious images in Embu, won the first prize at the Exposition Internationel d'Arts Techniques du Paris.
Afterwards, you'll be able to visit the Sacred Art Museum, located in a 16th-century building built by Jesuits and indigenous people from the region.
Later, you'll have 3 hours of free time to explore the town at your pace, gaining a sense of the cultural spirit embodied by Embu das Artes. You won't be able to resist the temptation to visit the art and craft shops spread along the lively streets. Plus, you'll be able to visit a local restaurant and enjoy typical cuisine accompanied by live music.
The day trip will end back in Sao Paulo between 3 and 4 pm.
This day trip includes pick-up from hotels within a 5 mile (8 km) radius of Praça da Sé. If you are staying outside of this area, we'll pick you up from 131 Rua Haddock Lobo.
