The monument is fantastic, I love it, but I have an advice for the tourists: go there by taxi or car, i.e. never consider to cross the 'Avenue Aterro do Flamengo' in front of it by foot. It is very dangerous because of the high...More

This monument, with a beautiful modern non-traditional architecture, is remembering a history of the Brazilian soldiers in the 2nd World War. The texts (in Portugal and English) on tables and the artifacts are describing all the facts about the Brazilian participation in the 2nd WW...More
