Walter Galera Garden

At the top of the Matarazzo Building, nowadays serving as São Paulo’s city hall, lurks a garden that not only contains plant species from all over the world, but also presents magnificent views of the city.

The garden takes its name from a former janitor of the building, who began growing some of plants on the terrace. The building is mesmerizing unto itself. Constructed using Italian marble, it was commissioned by Francesco Matarazzo, an Italian immigrant who went on to become one of Brazil’s most prominent entrepreneurs. Once inside be sure to look for the mosaic depicting the entire country.
