As it is such a large, diverse and cosmopolitan city, there isn’t a typical souvenir that every visitor brings back from São Paulo. There are precious few tourist shops selling the equivalent of Paris’s Eiffel Tower keyrings or toy double-decker buses in London, making souvenir-hunting slightly harder but ultimately more rewarding. Here are a few recommendations of where to go and what to bring back from São Paulo.

Museu Afro Brasil

Located inside Ibirapuera Park, the Museu Afro Brasil (or Afro-Brazilian Museum) is an excellent choice for a day out in São Paulo, doing an excellent and important job in documenting the history of Brazil’s Afro-descendant population. While the museum itself is spectacular, the gift shop is also a good place to pick up some interesting and unique souvenirs. From books to replicas of beautiful artifacts, you are sure to find a great gift to take back home.
