  • It is worth having a look at, but I would not suggest making a trip just to see it. Perhaps you might go to it if you are in the park anyway. 
  • Monument built to honor war heroes, is quite beautiful and a tourist spot.

  • 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.

  • 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.
