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!
