  • History, the monument has featured in the Park more loved by Paulistanos: the Ibirapuera Park. Monument in homage to the Pioneers, he is a nice place to take pictures and record your visit in the city. Right in front of this monument, has a lake that often, at the end of the day (check schedule) offers performances of water sources with lights and sounds! Great for taking the kids. The city's been strengthening well policing in the region with municipal guards. São Paulo is getting a city that increasingly, welcomes tourists from all over Brazil.

  • 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 :)
