  • 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.

  • Great tourist place, very safe, and the park next to it's beautiful for bicycle rides or a good walk and a few block from here "up" the roads (hills) it's the Ave. Paulista which is a great place to go to as well if you want to buy from local artist.
  • 5 min sight seeing with 2 or 3 photos should suffice... Other than that nice sculpture but with explanations whatsoever..
  • Beautiful Historic site.Stood next to this magnificent site.
  • 10/10 would walk past this again.
  • Expendido
