  • More than not possess neither friends nor relatives missing. Pass out at the request of friends. I don't have any opinion. I didn't like the place nothing more.

  • Beautiful place, where nature and architecture are combined to convey many feelings. Moving in all directions, it is far from the Centre but worth the walk its trails and forest, knowing its meaning.

  • I don't have any tourist interest. Located in the neighborhood of the Hill it's a monument in memory of the disappeared during the military dictatorship.

  • A place of remembrance of the disappeared during the dictatorship from 1973 to 1985. It is an open space in the Park Vaz Ferreira in a setting of panoramic Hill beach. A good place to hang out with family and know the kids part of our history more recent.
