Sao Paulo’s History

According to the historical facts about the development of Sao Paulo from its foundation until nowadays, the city was built by the Jesuits in 1554.


Since then, the city began to grow rapidly in terms of business, although it is claimed that it was after the Santos Port was connected with the interior of Brazil that the city flourished.


However, the city did not feature a high growth rate until the mid twentieth century when coffee export revenue began to be generated.


This shifted the balance and the industry was now to be the main activity of the city. Consequently, a wave of immigrants from many parts of the world, mainly Italians, arrived to the Sao Paulo and this is where the nickname “the world’s most italianate city” stems from.


Nevertheless, a substantial number of immigrants from Japan, Spain, Africa and Asia, and from South American countries also arrived here.


Thus, it is hardly surprising that a wide range of accents and cultures can be found in this city typical of the twentieth century.
