We'll start the tour with an introduction to the Vale do Anhangabau. Did you know that this indigenous name means "river of the evil spirit"?

Afterward, we'll visit the Santander Lighthouse, where we'll enjoy the best views of the city.
Our next stop will be Rua 15 de Novembro and the Centro Cultural Banco do Brasil, a center dedicated to different art forms. In order to learn more about the city's origins, we'll then go to Casa da Imagem, which houses thousands of photographs of the city.
The final destination on the tour will be the iconic Pateo do Collegio, considered the birthplace of Sao Paulo. Finally, at 12:30 pm, we'll finish the free tour of Sao Paulo back at the starting point.
