Sé, which derives its name from Sé Square, is a central neighbourhood in historic São Paulo. Close by, the Law School, the Museum of the Court of Justice and the Metropolitan Cathedral offer inspiring architecture. If you are looking for cultural activities, head to Caixa Cultural and check the schedule. In the area there is a popular pedestrian street called “Rua Direita”, one of the first streets in the region, which today marks the crowded perimeter. Sé is a great area to explore during daytime, but use caution if visiting alone at night.

The church is nice⛪but dirty
Oct 2020 • Solo
I feel emotional to see this church ⛪ back then it was popular among friends talk places they visit in Brazil.but sad my story is different maybe because of the coronavirus the reason why the place becomes the homeless people home.and it's dirty and stinky out front. The church is quite inside somehow they maintain it. After walking around I meet an angel 😇. Tell me and make me feel like the world has hope. hope and keep on pray🙏 have faith in God the earth is healing.

Great Cathedral but very bad area
Feb 2020 • Solo
The Cathedral itself is very nice, however the area it is in is not. As I walked out the Cathedral a man was taking a picture of it in broad day light. Another man came out of a crowd of people on a bicycle, rode by, and grabbed the phone out of the other mans hands before he knew what happened. The brazenness to do that in day light and in front of a church! I immediately got an Uber and left. As a previous person stated this was the only time they did not feel safe and I felt the same. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT GO TO THIS AREA.

Awesome cathedral, but we didn't feel secure
Jan 2020 • Couples
The cathedral itself is amazing, it's really nice. But I wouldn't recommend any strolling around it, as the surroundings looked not secure at all.

Everyone looked at us strangely, many locals asked us for some money and when a police patrol went around us, looking at us somehow weirdly, I decided to go back inside the cathedral quickly and call an Uber.

So the cathedral itself is worth visiting, but the surroundings doesn't. During my entire travel through Brazil I felt safe all the time except for this short walking around this magnificent building.

Would definitely recommend making time to visit. The cathedral is very impressive both inside and out. The surrounding area is a bit sketchy so go during the middle of the day. But definitely worth the time to visit.

Magnificent cathedral in rough enviroment
Oct 2019
The cathedral is located in the absolute city centre. But the enviroment is rough and I did not feel 100% secure during my 15 minutes visit. The cathedral is fantatstic from outside. Take a nice picture and step inside for a short visit and then arrange a transport from the site.

This is the heart of the City
Oct 2019
One of the most important Cathedral in the country. The heart of Sao Paulo City and the centre of the town as weel (mark ZERO). This is a place you can't miss when visiting the city.
