São Paulo is a synthesis of this continent sized country. A cauldron of cultures, brought by immigrants from all quarters of the world: the orient (being Japan the most important), Europe (a patchwork for cultures) and Africa (of many ethnic groups brought as slaves). These people who enriched the culture of the country were assimilated and are today proud citizens, contributing with a wealth of knowledge and a driving spirit who put the country in motion after Brazil became an independent country in 1822.

451 years: São Paulo celebrates its anniversary this year with parts of its history impressed on all races. Founded in 1554 by Jesuit priests, São Paulo was born destined to be the economic and cultural heart of the country. From the arrival of the first immigrants who settled here for the work in the coffee-growing sector, at the end of the 19th century, the city has seen a trajectory of constant growth. São Paulo is Brazil’s main gateway for foreign visitors. Business tourism has made the country city a strategic point within Mercosul, linked directly to the main world capitals.
