Farol Santander – Edifício Altino Arantes (EN)

The construction was built in reinforced concrete between 1939 and 1947 to hold the headquarters of Banco do Estado de São Paulo. Its name is a tribute to the Bank’s first president. Contemporaneous to the downtown renovation, which shaped the modernity of São Paulo, has its original design in Art Deco modified with the inclusion of the tower and modern lines on the façade. Today it is owned by Santander.Bank.
