  • The memorial is near the Palacio Araguaia in the square of Sunflowers and is a tourist spot in the city for anyone who likes history and has fun facts about the Prestes column. Great to make with the kids.

  • Niemeyer building, with its very particular characteristics. Can be visited for free, but there is a large collection, worth as visitation, but nothing special.

  • Small building of Niemeyer. Highlights of ufana form details of the Prestes column which went by Tocantins. Interesting, however it's a little abandoned, without air conditioning. It seems that the work was not originally slated to that exact spot, because there was no harmony with the weather, it was very very hot and without ventilation.
