Introducing: Predio do Banespa. It is a great view of the city landscape

Predio do Banesta, seen from the Anhangabau Park
Inaugurated in 1947 and located on the very centre of Sao Paulo, the Prédio do Banespa (Altino Arantes building), is one of the symbolic buildings of the city. Built to house the State Bank of São Paulo (Banespa).

Inspired by the EmpireState Building in New York.The Banespa building offers one of the best views of Sao Paulo. The observation deck is one of the highest in the city, not only because the building is 160 meters high, but also because it's located on the top of a hill near the Vale do Anhangabaú. It's possible visit the building.

It is free and you can go admire the cityscape. Visits to the observation deck last only five minutes. It's worth a visit!
