The National Senate (Portuguese: Senado Nacional) is the upper house of the Congress of San Paulo.
Created by the third Constitution of the Kingdom of San Paulo in 1836, it was initially similar to the United Kingdom's House of Lords.
Since the Democratization of the Country in 1974 the National Senate has resembled the Columbian Senate.
