Modelled after Victorian-era railway stations in England, the Estação da Luz originally linked the São Paulo region with the coast. It was completed in 1901 and was a symbol of both the prosperous coffee industry and the industrialisation of Brazil. The edifice was designed by the British architect, Charles Henry Driver, with all of its building materials also coming from England. Decades after its construction, the building fell into disrepair only to be restored and reopened in 2004 for the 450th anniversary of the city of São Paulo. The reinvented building now functions only as a local railway station, but also houses an interesting small museum, Museu da Língua Portuguesa, dedicated to the Portuguese language and its evolution since ancient times.
