Interesting but do not go just for this

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.

This can be seen from anywhere near or within the park. Clean architecture but not worth a particular visit. Spend your time in the park and view from a distance

The obelisk is so high and it can been seen from the park. It is a symbol for Brazil but as a sculpture is not something special. Visit it only if you want to take some pictures of it.

Go to the inside and breath the peace. A homage to the fallen of the constitutionalist Revolution in 1932, is more beautiful from the inside.

Not very special and not worth a visit just for the obelisk. You can see it from the park and that's plenty enough.

Since I was there at the 9th July, very date of anniversary of the Revolution, there had been brought in a dozen more remains of revolutionaries, just dead,... More

Nice one to take some photos. And is beside Ibirapuera Park. Buy a hot-dog and soda, go to the park and enjoy. =)

There is not much to say about this monument. It is tall and might help some people to orientate themselves better in the area.

Neighbourhood Profile
Ibirapuera
Ibirapuera Park, the highlight of this neighbourhood, is a family-friendly area to have a picnic, relax, play sports, exercise or appreciate art. It gets crowded during the weekends and is a popular leisure destination for residents. Its 1,584 square kilometers holds three lakes, two museums and several other cultural spaces. The park hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as free music concerts and a water and light show celebrating the holidays at the end of the year. There are two important monuments to visit, the Obelisk and the Flag Monument. Ibirapuera is a perfect escape!
