  • I got to visit with monitors super helpful and well informed. There are few historical pieces and more photos and texts. The air conditioning was not working so the visit was quick. But I recommend to anyone who has interest in regional history.

  • Just like the Government Palace this memorial is in the square of sunflowers. Worth a visit in the late afternoon. In front there's a mall (Palmas Mall).

  • 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 ...
