Praça Pôr do Sol
As the name itself suggests, Praça Pôr do Sol (Sunset Square) is an ideal spot to go at the end of the day, just as the sun is setting. In the fancy and elevated neighborhood of Alto dos Pinheiros, the square has gained a reputation for being one of the most romantic places in São Paulo. For decades it has attracted couples, young and old, wanting to take in one of the city’s breathtaking sunsets from a vantage point that allows you to look all the way to the horizon of São Paulo’s west side. Being such a large and built-up city, you wouldn’t expect São Paulo to have such impressive sunsets, particularly as even on clear nights it can be difficult to see stars in the night sky due to the city’s pollution. However, you’d be gravely mistaken, as the São Paulo sky often takes on an incredible, almost hallucinogenic haze every evening, with some spectacular colors, as pictured below.
