about banespa

The Banespa Tower is one of the best-known skyscrapers of Sao Paulo. The building was constructed to be the headquarters of the Bank of the State of Sao Paulo. The tower rose over an eight-year period, crowning the city as its tallest building in 1947, a title held for the next 18 years. Inspired by New York City’s Empire State Building, the tower exhibits Art Deco styling both inside and out. Panoramic, 360-degree views of the city from the 35th-floor observation deck extend to over 25 miles, encompassing all of downtown and even the verdant Serra da Cantareira mountain range to the city’s north. 

The building also houses the Banespa Museum, which chronicles the almost 100-year history of the bank since its inauguration as Bank of Hipotecario Credit of the State of Sao Paulo until now. The museum's collection includes 993 objects, 1003 workmanships, 98 signed photographs, 66 eastern and national carpets among others items.
