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. Make Monumento ao Desbravador a part of your Maringa vacation plans using our Maringa itinerary maker.

  • Is a famous square of Maringá, most often used as a reference point, but don't waste your time, besides not being pretty, it's still dangerous.

  • It is interesting to discover, there is much to see, just a photo. Nice for who's in the region visiting some things.
