Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto, Luanda

Marvel at the size of Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto, a landmark tower overlooking the sea and the final resting place of independent Angola's first president. The imposing Soviet-style concrete structure stands 120 m (393 ft) tall amidst a 500 m (1,640 ft) long square. Referencing Neto's poem "The Path of the Stars," the monument bears the name of his poetry book "Sacred Hope." Climb the tower for panoramic views of Luanda. The building also houses an exhibit of paintings featuring Dr. Neto, a set of sculptures representing Angolan trades, as well as a collection of photographs of the charismatic leader.

  • Nice place, quiet, good photos. Imposing monument with beautiful and well-kept square in front. A good event space.

  • sorry, but I am not a fan of these man made monuments commemorating people. Saw it from the fort which was quite enough.  more »
  • A beautiful walk where he relives the story of Agostinho Neto, the place where the sculpture of Agostinho Neto is spectacular. A great place for a family outing.
