Fundação Maria Luisa e Oscar Americano

São Paulo

Home of the couple who developed the leafy, upscale suburb of Morumbi, this fine retreat hosts impressive gardens and a lovely collection of painting, sculpture and objets d’art from the 18th- to the 20th-centuries. The 1950s house-turned-museum is a small masterpiece of Brazilian modernism, and there’s also a lovely cafe that serves traditional high tea for R$68.
