Latin America Memorial, Sao Paulo

4.2
#15 of 105 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.

  • Great space and ideal for the end which is intended: events and exhibitions. I've been in the exhibition of the Castle You Boom it was very good by the way. Now about the facility to eat, I found the food bad, man and without many option, as healthy foods for example.

  • I was in the Castle exhibition Ra Tim Bum and I loved it! Has costume characters, pages of original screenplays, puppets and marionettes used in the episodes, the gatekeeper receives you in the lobby, and Celeste and your tree has also, with Nino's room. Maybe could be greater exposure ... but it's worth the visit!

  • We went on display in the Castle Ra Tim Bum, thanks super, who comes to SP until February to visit, now it is better to buy the ticket on the site because it runs out soon, the 9:00 is the first time, after buying just get with 30 minutes before that time.

  • A great place to keep in mind when you are in São Paulo. They always open great exhibitions, promote food and music festivals.
  • Excelent cultural site. If you like to get a deeper understand about Latin culture is were you should go.
  • Great place to take your family to taste Latin American food and check other culture.
  • Great place to spend the weekend when there´s a food or beer selection festival. This happens at least once in a month i think.
  • Awesome multipurpose venue. Monuments, art gallery, the building itself (Niemeyer's design), open air parties, runs... Everything happens in and around here.
