Located at one end of Julio de Castilhos Avenue, Monumento Nacional ao Imigrante, is a tribute to the immigrants who have played a crucial role in the settlement and formation of the nation of Brazil. Although originally built to honor specifically the Italian immigrants that settled in the Rio Grande do Sul region, the monument was appropriated in 1953 to commemorate immigrants of all ethnicities, throughout the entirety of Brazil. Underneath the obelisk, and bronze figures of a man and women, holding their child, you will find a marble crypt that is used as a cultural exhibition space.

    The monument, as well as most of the attractions of Caxias are looks to the future, prosperity and development. The city pulsates the challenge and progress. It's wonder and think about how the foreigners who arrived there have created conditions to grow and make the city a vibrant location

    The monument is one of the highest points of the city and practically the end of Sinimbu that is the main street of the city. A beautiful tribute to our culture and Italian immigrants

    Site too simple, a monument until well built, tourist spot of the city, contains a museum beneath the monument, but is always closed. The scene around is beautiful, full of plane trees, in autumn is beautiful. However the same is violent, vandalism, assaults and porstituição are on the rise around.

    Historical monument of Italian immigration, opened in 1954 by President Getulio Vargas. Worth watching a bit of the history of the monument.

    Beautiful place, right at the entrance to downtown. It's worth taking a picture. However care should be taken to stop the car, does occur several robberies there.
