São Paulo is hosting some of the biggest communities of immigrants of the world. We will talk about Italians, Japanese, Syrian-Lebanese and many others. We will discover the history of the first skyscraper of Latin America and learn how the Tupi tribe was living here before and where was passing one of the oldest path of South America We will cover the "new' center and discover the historical downtown. Jesuits and Conquerors, Churches and Banks, migrants and immigrants! During this walk I'll show you how the city of Sao Paulo transformed itself in the last 100 years and what means living here today. Be ready to jump to the top of the city to shell the eyes in front of its immensity to then dive into its vibrant communities getting lost in its colors, perfumes and hidden details. This is what happens to me everyday since I live in this beautiful mess!
