Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Sao Paulo / Sao Paulo / Latin America Memorial
Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the prolific Brazilian architect, Latin America Memorial is a monument to the sociocultural and political unity of Latin America. Upon arrival, you will see a vast field of concrete, in which perfectly geometrical concrete pavilions stand alongside Niemeyer’s large, bleeding hand statue. As you explore inside, you will find galleries, an auditorium, and a library reflecting the ideas of Darcy Ribeiro, an influential cultural anthropologist, and creator of the Latin America Memorial concept. The permanent exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and folk art you will see on display represents the archetypes of Latin American cultures, not only strengthening the identity of its people, but also encouraging its creative development. The Latin America Memorial has a rotating schedule of performances and events, which enables you to join in with the celebrations of the past, present, and future of these people. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Sao Paulo holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Latin America Memorial and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

So many stories are told here. A lot of sad stories, but all show strength of a continent of people. The architecture is excellent, the art is beautiful and the stories are the best. Its a must see!

Amazing spot to take in some beautiful pieces of art and relax in the large plaza/courtyard. From the gallery to the public library, everyone is super welcoming and the free exhibits were fantastic. Some beautiful paintings and sculptures scattered around across both sides of the street. I was also there while they were holding a festival/concert and it was amazing with 40-50 different food trucks and a stage setup.
Awesome! They had a 80 year anniversary of batman expo there and it was fantastic. Check out the photos. Would definitely recommend to go there while this is there. Apart from that it was nothing too exciting, a few art sections..
They’re strict with time. I came few minutes to 5pm and i wasn’t allowed to go in. I took pictures outside only which is nothing compared to going in. If you must go, appear before 5pm
Amazing place to go, you can always go to exhibitions in there (some of them are free). In about 4 years ago in my first visit to Memorial I saw “Catelo Ra-Tim-Bum” exhibition and last month I had the privilege of seeing “Batman 80”.
There's lots to see about Latin American culture, especially sculptures. I went to a concert and everything was really well organized and I quite enjoyed how it was done, lots of people attending with no inconvenience and enjoying themselves. There was food trucks and tents as well as a restaurant if you wanted to eat. And also booths to buy drinks. I'd definitely come back.
