Monument to the Bandeiras is a very impressive piece of art! It is worth walking all the way around it to appreciate it in full.

We walked to Ibirapuera Park from Paulista Avenue and before you reach the park you come across the Monument. It is impressive and you must stop here for a photo before entering the park.

Monument to the Bandeiras is a large-rough sculpture at the entrance of Ibirapuera Park in São Paulo. You will see it in case you visit the Ibirapuera Park, otherwise there is no reason to arrange a visit specific for it.

The huge monument made of 240 granite bricks, weighing 50 tons each! The monument put side by side the Brazil's ethnic diversity! A beautiful sculpture created and built by Victor Brecheret!
