  • Praça dos Girassóis impressed right away by your size, is the largest in Latin America and the second largest square in the world. Very good nice clean, it becomes an excellent place for walks, sports and cultural history on a tour, because there are some government buildings and the monument to the 18 of the Copacabana Fort. Worth knowing!

  • Mandatory point in Palmas. The square is huge. According to the Wikipedia, with 571,000 square meters, the Praça dos Girassóis-located in Palmas Tocantins-is the largest in Latin America and the second largest urban square in the world. It is part of a planned city and houses a work of Oscar Niemeyer and the administrative center of the State. Needs more janitorial
