Monumento ao Desbravador, Maringa

(1/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It was supposed to be a important square in the city, but is now virtually forgotten. It's a dangerous square even for those who are transiting. But there's a lot of history with Maringá.

  • The monument is a square all clumsy and no call or tourist interest. I inform you that there's no place to park around the site, shopping during the week.

  • How is one of the attractions of the city, I think it's worth a stop to grab some photos to keep as a souvenir.
