From Mairinque, the major city of Sao Paulo is approximately 35 miles (56 kilometers) to the east.
It's hardly surprising Mairinque is a perennial favourite with travelers from all over the world; Sao Paulo is an Aladdin's Cave of fascinating sights and attractions. Piedade and Barueri are two more places you may wish to visit while you're in Sao Paulo.
About 17 miles (27 kilometers) to the west of Mairinque is Sorocaba, an important regional city and the home of Carlos de Campos Square, Esplanada Shopping Center and Altina Vaz Tedesco Square. Laudelino do Amaral Square, Walter Ribeiro Municipal Stadium and Maconaria Square are some more attractions that should be included on everyone's schedule.
To truly understand a place, it helps to understand the past. Sao Paulo 's fascinating historic mansions provide a wonderful starting point. On a fine day, head outdoors to explore Sao Paulo 's open-air museums, open-air markets and open-air exhibits.
Delve into a side of Sao Paulo many visitors will never see by joining a passionate local guide on one of the city walking tours, culinary tours and wildlife spotting tours. When the mercury rises, take the lead of the locals and head to the region's waterways for a day of canoeing or snorkeling.
As your time here draws to an end, spend your last reals on last-minute keepsakes and say Adeus to the characters you have met and the spots you've been.
