Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo

The city's oldest art museum dates back to 1905 and is an absolute bonanza of both Brazilian and Paulista art from the 19th century to the present, including works by big names like Portinari and Di Cavalcanti. The space itself, a neoclassical gem designed by renowned Brazilian architect Ramos de Azevedo, is a minimalist wonder to walk through, and the museum's position next to the leafy and tranquil Parque da Luz makes it an idyllic backdrop for a cafezinho (espresso) amid the chaos of the city center.
