  • The Memorial is beautiful, the day did not have access to the inside, I don't know if that's possible, but I was curious to see you inside ...

  • Located in the square of Sunflowers, the Memorial stands out for the architecture. Inside, the exhibition focuses on Luis Carlos Prestes. There is a Panel on the column Prestes and some objects donated by the family. The building stands out more than the exhibition.

  • This memorial has a Museum in honor of Luís Carlos Prestes and a statue next to the entrance of the Museum. Is located beside the Monument 18 do Forte, another tourist attraction that resembles the historical/political moment that bears the same name. Due to the strike of the civil service at the time of my visit the city couldn't meet the Museum internally. Part of the script of city-tour of the city.
