  • It is undoubtedly a towering Monument with a superb landscaping, to make known the story of the first President of Angola, a harmony very befitting the brilliance of this Greatest Poet!

  • Nice monument, will be better if they have explanation in English. You should go to the building under the tower, if you're from visitor center then go to 2nd floor where the connecting door is located.
  • Very beautiful amd organised. Good food and hospitality.
  • The Memorial Antonio Agostinho Neto is a nice place. Built with good taste and top quality materials.
