Avenida Paulista takes its name from of the people of the State of São Paulo, the Paulistas, and was inaugurated in 1891. Since then, it has become one of the largest and most famous avenues in the city, the focal point for economic, cultural, artistic and tourismrelated activities.
Financial institutions, corporate offices, art galleries, restaurants and museums have taken up residence along the busy avenue, which is also the scene of major parades and the most important political events. Bordered by Tenente Siqueira Campos Park, a veritable green oasis, this avenue is also particularly interesting for its architecture. Avenida Paulista is a key site for any tourists wishing to explore the beating heart of Sao Paulo.
