Today is Avenida Paulista 119th birthday

Inaugurated on December 8, 1891, the Avenida Paulista was an initiative of the engineer Joaquim Eugenio de Lima, to respond to the demand of the residential center of Sao Paulo. In 119 years, the street followed the changes that transformed the city into one of the largest and most important of the world, always being at the forefront of these changes.

Today the Avenida Paulista is the main postcard from Sao Paulo, housing hundreds of shopping centers, theaters, bars, restaurants and universities. Daily, including weekends, officers, young and old people walk on its sidewalk.
