  • Monument built in 1936 by architect Alberto Prebisch. Located at the intersection of AV. 9 de Julho with Av Corrientes.

  • Finally got around to visiting the mausoleum that sits below the Obelisk to Heroes of 1932, also known as Obelisco do Ibirapuera. If I'm not mistaken the walls and Crypts are all made in Carrara marble. The place is nice, but it's still a funerary monument and symbol of the Constitutionalist Revolution of 1932. Is the greatest monument of the city.

  • The Obelisk is a symbol of the Constitutionalist Revolution of 1932. 100% made of marble. Is a tourist spot and aggregates culture. I found missing someone on site who can guide with historical information, when I visited only had one guard who couldn't pass cultural information of the monument, I had to search on the internet. Other than that the ride was cool.
