LOCATION 1 | Downtown São Paulo
Start- Cathedral Square
You should be standing in Cathedral Square, facing the imposing Se Cathedral, with its two large steeples.
São Paulo is a huge, sprawling metropolis of over 11 million inhabitants and where you're standing right now is considered to be the centre of it all!
I would like you take a moment to look around you. You've probably noticed a number of homeless people. This brings me onto an important safety tip.
As I take you on this journey of the city I have fallen in love with, please conceal your personal possessions. You see, pick pockets adore the route I’m about to take you on!
Before we start, allow me also to introduce myself. My name is Andrew Creelman and I am the author of two best-selling books on life in São Paulo for foreigners. I am also a tour guide who has been hired to show many international clients around, including a number of Hollywood actors.
So, it's my pleasure to be passing my knowledge of the city on to you today, and guiding you through the downtown area of São Paulo.
Before we head off, let me briefly explain how VoiceMap works.
It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. This means that you can put your phone away now. Don't worry if I'm silent for a while, when I'm not giving directions or telling stories. There's a map on your screen if you ever feel lost, and if you do get way off track without noticing, VoiceMap will let you know.
So, lets get going!
You're going to cross the street ahead and make your way up the steps to the entrance of the Cathedral. You'll hear from me again when you reach the top.
