Monumento ao Desbravador, Maringa

1.0
#9 of 10 in Sightseeing in Maringa
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • If you ask about the monument to the desbravdor, no one will explain. But if you ask about the Naked square, all ready you will indicate the location. Broad and pleasant square.

  • Sete de Setembro square is very famous, however, is much more known as Naked square, here in Maringá. Is a square a huge circle at a point of convergence of 4 major avenues. What we have in this square are two monuments: the Naked and the Pathfinder. The Pathfinder, as the name says, is a tribute to the pioneers of the North of Paraná. The naked gun also represents the pioneer, Pathfinder itself, which came without much, almost "naked", so to speak, to take up residence and exploration of the region. So it is an important point in the culture of the city.

Where to stay in Maringa

You're most likely to find accommodation in the central grid of Maringa, which is bisected by the railway line and lies just north of the iconic Cathedral of Maringa. Stay in one of the larger hotels in the city center--and ask for a south-facing room--to experience views of the spiked cathedral from the comfort of your suite. If you want to make the most of the city's vast green spaces, stay near one of Maringa's biggest urban parks, Parque do Inga or Bosque 2. If you're driving and just planning to spend one night, you can find accommodations along the main arteries in and out of town.
