Monumento ao Desbravador, Maringa

Created by artist Henry Aragon, Monumento ao Desbravador honors original settlers to this area and the founders of the city. The figure’s nakedness and raised arms represent simplicity, strength, and resilience of those early trailblazers who arrived with nothing more than a determination to survive here. Erected in 1972, the sculpture is situated inside a small park that is an important part of a city square built to honor September 7th, Brazil’s day of independence. This historic monument, locally known as the "Naked Guy," is located in the old town center, and you can access it easily on your walking tour of the city. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Maringa holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Monumento ao Desbravador and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Cleared the square, put lights. Was a more showy. Nothing interesting. It has no plate with the history of the monument.

  • One of the oldest monuments of Maringa had your House revitalized. This roundabout was forgotten and the current administration of the Prefecture Ulysses Macdonald has revitalized this beautiful environment of the monument. Deserves a visit.

  • More known with the Naked square, one of the postcards of the city recently has been revitalized, the square gained more life and stayed all florida. The site is on AV. Brazil sense Maringá old.
