Built to serve as the summer home of the Governor of the State, is open to visitors at certain times of year. The construction of Boa Vista Palace began in 1938, but was only completed in 1964. Three years later, the then Governor of the State of Sao Paulo Abreu Sodre, decided to open the doors of the Palace to the public, giving greater utility to the official residence of "summer" of the state government. On April 12, 1970, Governor Abreu Sodré in solemn ceremony, said Boa Vista Palace as "Monument Office of the State of Sao Paulo" and opened its doors for visitors in the style of European palaces and castles.
