  • The obelisk is so high and it can been seen from the park. It is a symbol for Brazil but as a sculpture is not something special. Visit it only if you want to take some pictures of it. 
  • Is very interesting, very cute and Rico, stories worth knowing and watching closely as it is well known in São Paulo.

  • I found the site difficult to access, we ended up not stopping to visit, as well as by far would have to cross a busy Avenue. Worth it for historical value.

  • 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.
