Not very high but nice to look and see the difference of the scenery then (posters at every direction) and what you are staring at now. Nice wind for even a hot day. Some relics were displayed but nothing fascinating. Probably take 15-20 mins max.

The place is good for look the view of Campinas, but there isn't much more to do. You have a 360º view from the city and photographs with some explanation about historic buildings.

Provides a beautiful view over the downtown of Campinas. Good to go to get a feel for the city. It is free. There are many stairs to climb, no elevator.
