This paper aims to discuss the impacts of the globalization process on Brazilian metropolises based on a comparative analysis of the recent trajectory of São Paulo and Salvador, which provides rich information for this discussion. Starting from the current literature on this topic, the paper analyzes the extent to which the phenomena associated with this process are leading to greater changes in the social and urban structures of these agglomerations. It is noted, with this analysis, that they present some stability next to some changes, whose diversity and complexity are not being addressed by the most current theoretical formulations.
