The Mausoleum is located on the Chicala road that connects the Marginal with the road that goes South to Luanda Sul. I work across from the Mausoleum and it is a beautiful structure with manicured lawns, viewing stands for troop parades and other small building,...More

A great place to know a little more about Angola basically is a mausoleum dedicated to his memory, must go on Sundays, before 16.00. A pity there is lots of luxury and details on such a place surrounded by people living in extreme conditions

We visited this place and we were surprised by how huge it is. Looks small when seen from the road but once inside, there's lots to see. Guides are quite helpful and eager to explain about the things found inside. Plan to stay for at...More

sorry, but I am not a fan of these man made monuments commemorating people. Saw it from the fort which was quite enough.

Only a Communist would have a mausoleum of such grand design. Built in a modern Soviet style - it resembles many Soviet monuments which of course are relics of history. The tens of millions of dollars that went into the building of this monument could...More

We visited with s group and enjoyed the extensive monument. The views from above to the parliament are good and the grounds are nice. It is worth seeing all the statues inside too. No pictures allowed inside but nice to see.

The final resting place of the first president of Angola is both an interesting architectural monument on true grande communist/Soviet style (symbolizing a space ship/rocket according to the guide) and as a display of the history surrounding Neto. There was an English speaking sympathetic guide...More

The monument, a memorial to former President Agostinho Neto is astonishing and you can see it from several points of the city. I tried to see the interior in several occasions with no success, the guards of this heavy secure location always said its closed.
