Mausoleum of Agostinho Neto, Luanda

3.4
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 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.
  • A nice place barely used.
  • the stuff was very bad with us.didn't get any help from the 2 receptionist.rude ladies
