Praca Dos Girassois, Palmas

(4.3/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
With an area of approximately 570,000 sq m (6.1354 sq ft), Praca Dos Girassois is the second largest public square in the world, only surpassed by the Merdeka Square in Jakarta, Indonesia. Due to its immense size, it is even larger than the Tiananmen Square in Beijing and the Red Square in Moscow. It is considered as the administrative center of the state of Tocantins, since all three branches of the state (executive, legislative, and judicial) are located on it. Besides these governmental buildings, the huge square is also home to Memorial Luis Carlos Prestes, Monument of the Fort 18, and Metropolitan Cathedral of Palms. Other attractions also include a sundial, a playground, food court open during the night, fountains, and gardens to highlight the history and culture of the city.

  • Lack infrastructure, does not have banks, there are no public restrooms, lighting and paving need attention. At night there's no security. The venue has played host to the best book fair in the world in all its editions.
