20 Images That Prove São Paulo Is the Most Instagrammable Place on the Planet

by Marcela Faé Nov 3, 2015

LOCATED IN THE SOUTHEAST OF BRAZIL, São Paulo is South America’s largest metropolitan area, home to 20 million people. Though flawed and made almost entirely of concrete, the city holds a certain type of unique charm. My São Paulo is a city for the busy and for the working. It’s big. It’s chaotic. But it’s still photogenic.
