Catedral da Sé

Fodor's Review

The imposing, 14-tower neo-Gothic Catedral da Sé occupies the official center of São Paulo—the 0 Km point, as it's called here. Tours of the church wind through the crypt that contains the remains of Tibiriçá, a native Brazilian who helped the Portuguese back in 1554.
