São Paulo Sights



Memorial da América Latina Review

This massive cement hand, its fingers spread wide, reaching toward the São Paulo sky, is one of the city's signature images. Part of a 20-acre park filled with Oscar Niemeyer-designed structures, the Memorial da América Latina was inaugurated in 1989 in homage to regional unity and its greatest champions, among them Simón Bolívar and José Martí. Aside from the monument, the grounds' highlights include works by Cândido Portinari, and an auditorium dedicated to musical and theatrical performances.
