Built between 1926 and 1938, the beautiful neo-Baroque Estação Júlio Prestes was designed by the architect Christiano Stockler das Neves as the headquarters and the railway terminus for Estrada de Ferro Sorocabana (EFS). EFS was a rail company that transported coffee beans to the coastal ports for export. As the importance of the trade declined and country roads improved, the use of this railway station eventually ended. In 1999, the building was restored and ingeniously turned into a cultural centre, Centro Cultural Júlio Prestes, which houses the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra. Its impressive music hall, Sala São Paulo, located in the main gallery of the station, is considered to have the best acoustics in South America.
Performance hall used by the Sao Paulo symphony as well as other musicians. Very impressive building, elegant, and grandiose on the inside and out. There are many shows to choose from, just check out the site to find out the program schedule.
