SALA SAO PAOLO

The Estação Júlio Prestes, was built in 1926 as a hub for Sao Paolo’s railway system. Over time and with the decline in the use of trams and trains, the station became abandoned and, years later, restored by Governor Mario Covas, responding to a request from the conductor of the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra to build a place that would be converted into a concert hall. Considered one of the most beautiful concert halls in the world - comparable to many world-renowned halls in the United States or Europe, such as the Symphony Hall in Boston; the Musikverein, in Vienna; and the Concertgebouw, in Amsterdam - the Sala São Paulo the best resources for acoustic adaptation to the various symphonic and chamber formations. It has 1,484 seats (15 for wheelchair users, 4 for obese people, and 48 boxes).
