A beautifull village close to São Paulo


In 1554, a group of Jesuits founded the settlement of Bohi, after M'Boy Mirin, halfway the sea and the São Paulo country area.
The artistic vocation of the city began to be projected in 1937, when Cássio M'Boy, image-maker of Embu, won the First Grand Prize at the International Technical Arts Exhibition in Paris.
The artistic tradition of the city was institutionalized and gained projection in and out of Brazil in 1964 with the First Hall of the Arts. At the same time, from the late 1960s, the city became the attraction pole for hippies, who exposed their artcrafts on weekends, giving rise to the Fair Arts and Crafts, which is held every weekend (the best time for doing this tour) from 1969 and which is a major driver of the tourist projection of the city.
* If your party is larger than 3, please contact me before booking anything and I will send you a customized tour with the updated price for that.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our trip to the City of Embu was most efficiently planned with seamless transportation to this art colony from the port. Diogo had the most pleasant personality all day through... was a great source of historical information along the way. Highly recommend!
