  • I went with my job and I was very glad to have something of such importance to Brazilians who gave their lives in World War II. Recommend to visit for all ages.

  • Worth visiting due to historical content that it represents, the monument itself is no big deal, but it's worth visiting the Museum.

  • Only drove past it on my way to the Airport, but it's quite stunning.
  • It is an amazing place with a beautiful view and a lot of history about the Brazilian Army in the WWI and WWII. Congratulations!
  • The monument is striking. There isn't a whole lot to see here, but it's certainly worth walking around if you're already in the area. Don't let the military police worry you.
  • Bela homenagem
  • Nice urban park for running and bicycling
