Monumento ao Desbravador, 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
