  • There is no additional information for the visitor (which should be a few). I was there about 30 minutes and didn't get in anyone else. There is no guide, no brochure or audiovisual work. But it's nice, multiple panels and has sculptures too. If you do not know anything about the movement of 1932, going out the same way you came in: without knowing anything.

  • It is a monument that is next to the ibirapuera Park, well located, we can see a long way, worth checking out.

  • Beneath the Obelisk there is a mausoleum in honour of those who fought in the revolution of 1932. A good stop for a prayer for the souls and to say thanks for everything you are.

  • The obelisk itself looks great and from the pictures, i think, that the mausoleum should also be very interesting - i was very unlucky, because it was closed the day i was there (no holiday; during the day - no idea, why it was closed) The crossing of the road is VERY dangerous - it's better to go a few hundred meters in norther direction and cross the road there
  • We just drove by but it's awesome. Loved it.
  • Amazing place
  • Monumento interessante
  • Muito bonito.
