  • Situated just before the Congress, is a copy of the created by Rodin. The square is surrounded by many gastronomic options and attractions. Worth a quick stop and take some pictures.

  • In the Plaza del Congreso is the famous statue of Rodin. Deserves more attention on the part of managers: it's always pigeon droppings dirty (as well as the square). Anyway, worth a visit especially for the location.

  • It is not a reproduction of the original "the thinker". Statues both share the same mold made by Rodin. A beauty in the middle of the two congresses square.

  • Lindo e maravilhoso! Não é uma cópia e sim um original feito do molde original de August Rodin. Imperdivel!!
