The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ipiranga
Named after the Ipiranga River, this region is home to Independence Park, where it’s said Brazilian Independence was proclaimed. Its gardens and the tree-lined main street offer visitors a gracious view. The neighborhood also hosts assorted museums and has a strong local feel. Ipiranga is a calm area, with a variety of good dining places and its own Municipal Market, which features flowers, meat, vegetables, fruits and some special events. Outside the main subway stations you can experience the busy streets, but you just need to walk a few blocks to get back the residential serenity of the area.

This is a "must go" place, specially for the Brazilians or those interested in the Brazilian history. The monument is in the place where Pedro, the 1st, declared independence of Brazil from Portugal in 1822. Pedro, the 1st was the first Emperor of Brazil who, late also become, king of Portugal. Therefore, the Brazilian history always was interwined with the Portugal's. In the mausoleum the emperor's remains were deposited, together with his first wife, empress Leopondina, and second wife, empress Amelia de Leuchtenberg. The monument is imposing and very beautiful and took many years to be built. The state of conservation is satisfactory, however the neighboring area could be better conserved.

I would recommend going to see this quickly if you are in close vicinity of it. If you are not close by then you are not missing much.

We've visited this monument on Independence Day. This must be IT. Which moment is better?
The park is OK, the monument is a monument and for the rest there is not much to see or do.

In 2000 a new space inside was created, designed by the Heritage Department (DPH), allowing public access to the guts of this commemorative sculpture. The work focused on the architectural changes inside the monument: new accesses the Imperial Chapel, construction of the monumental staircase, toilets, service areas and services. Externally the sculptural groups of the monument have been restored. The panel embossed, "Independence or Death" received internal and external intervention.

Beautiful and interesting. Be sure to have someone there to translate what it says for you. We went at night, and everything was lit up well, so we could still see everything and feel safe.

I liked it because inside it there are two tombs, of D. Pedro I and his second wife. This D. Pedro I proclamed our independence from Portugal. It´s a very small place, nothing else to be seen. Just nice.

It´s a nice historic place, but could be a bit hard to be there, it´s a bit far from the most important hotels. Nice to walk there during the weekends, but be careful with the skaters. In cloudy days, carry your umbrella, theres no protection against rain there (own experience).
