Viaduto do Chá

Located in the historic center of São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, Viaduto do Chá is a famous building that connects Rua Barão de Itapetininga, formerly Rua do Chá, to Rua Direita. Inaugurated in 1892, the original building had a metal frame with a wooden floor. Over time, the structure was wearing out and pointing to the need for reform. In 1938, the old work was demolished to make way for the current viaduct, 204 meters long and with a concrete frame by Votorantim Cimentos.
