Latin America Memorial, Sao Paulo

4.3
#15 of 123 in Museums in Sao Paulo
Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the prolific Brazilian architect, Latin America Memorial is a monument to the sociocultural and political unity of Latin America. Upon arrival, you will see a vast field of concrete, in which perfectly geometrical concrete pavilions stand alongside Niemeyer’s large, bleeding hand statue. As you explore inside, you will find galleries, an auditorium, and a library reflecting the ideas of Darcy Ribeiro, an influential cultural anthropologist, and creator of the Latin America Memorial concept. The permanent exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and folk art you will see on display represents the archetypes of Latin American cultures, not only strengthening the identity of its people, but also encouraging its creative development. The Latin America Memorial has a rotating schedule of performances and events, which enables you to join in with the celebrations of the past, present, and future of these people. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Sao Paulo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Latin America Memorial and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • The Memorial is a great space, with ease of access (Palmeiras/Barra Funda Station of the subway, the bus terminal, parking $10.00/12:00 everything very close) buildings with a beautiful architecture, there are always exhibitions in place, plenty of room to practice any activity. Worth it to enjoy the site.

  • Cultural place with some interesting events and concerts (like Cultura Inglesa festival)
  • Like all Niemeyer creations, it's all concrete and glass. No green areas whatsoever. A must see in Sampa. Great exibits! But don't forget the sunscreen...
  • Great to expend the weekend, always find something happening, usually includes food and beer.
  • I came here to see the Bolivia in Brazil Festival. The festival was great, but the venue was just okay. The building needs to be repainted or cleaned. There was no where to wash hands but 20 vendors were selling food.
  • Excelente lugar para eventos. Fiz minha colação de grau lá.
