Osasco

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Osasco is a city in the São Paulo state, located in the metropolitan area of the city of São Paulo. Despite being a large and economically active city, it has not much to offer to the casual tourist. Also unlike the other large cities of the metro area, Osasco does not contain a "nature district"; it is instead completely urban and conurbated with other cities.
