    This monument was built to commemorate the fourth centenary of the city of São Paulo. It is a work of modernist artist Victor Brecheret. It is the largest work of art made in granite city. Worth the visit.

    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.

    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 :)
