  • For those who drive, impractical stop to photograph or even play. But easily Park next. On weekends there's always traffic of people, dogs and various types of sellers out there, but the night is usually wilderness for pedestrians and unsafe. But the photo is beautiful!

  • The landmark of Ibirapuera park. it is an impressive artwork.
  • Great statue, it pictures the adventurers who explored the interior of the country, the Bandeirantes. This statue is the most interactive statue in the city. You will find dozens of people climbing it to take pictures: incredible and dangerous.
  • Pretty cool monument.
  • Very cool monument at such a heavily used road. I especially liked the detail in the traffic lights next to the monument - they are quite funny :)
