Built next to Luz Garden, the city's first public garden, Luz Station, built with imported materials from England, stands out in the landscape for the beauty of its architecture. Its clock tower gives a nostalgic look to the landscape.

I'm by no means a prude, but this station was gross, all the main entrances had prostitutes soliciting in the doorway. I'm not against people trying to make a living, it's just that the whole place feels dangerous. The parque was even worse. I'm fit...More

The architecture is from the end of the XIX century. People say they brought the steel structure from London and they only assembled it in here. I find it so beautiful that my wife and I decide to have a pre wedding photo shoot in...More

If you go visit the Pinacoteca Art Museum, walk across the street to the train station for a quick visit. The train station is not a place to go visit by itself, but I like old train stations. They have done a good job of...More

A cool old train station. In my opinion, it's not a destination in and of itself, though it's worth checking out. The Museum of the Portuguese Language is here (on the side facing the Pinocateca) but it was closed when I was there. As noted,...More

I went there and I kind of liked the station and the history of it. But I feel the neighborhood around the station is not safe. Please be watchful if you around the place if you go solo.

To truly know São Paulo, you have to start at the old
centre, full of history and landmarks with stories to
tell. Get a taste of local food at the Municipal
Market, and if you are brave enough, head to the
crowded shopping street “25 de março” for cheap deals
on a wide assortment of items. Beautiful buildings in
this area include the Post Office Building, Luz
Station, Pagé Gallery, Pateo do Colegio and the iconic
