Nocturne view of Copan Building (left), Sao Paulo Hilton Hotel (right) and Consolacao Street (center). Sao Paulo was founded by the Jesuits in 1554, on a plateau 2,493 feet (760 meters) above sea level, but only 45 miles (72 km) from the coast, as a mission center. For a long time it was rather a small town. Around 1850 it began to grow and became richer thanks to the highly productive coffee plantations in the state. The city’s Latin motto is Non ducor, duco, which translates as “I am not led, I lead”. A famous nickname for the city is “Sampa”.
