“Look at the picture, this is all you get.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

There is not much to say about this monument. It is tall and might help some people to orientate themselves better in the area.

“Just an iconic symbol”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

In my opinion, although the Obelisk is an important landmark in the city, it does not justify a visit on its own. However, it is easily spotted if you visit Ibirapuera Park.

But it is nice to see an Obelisk, wherever you are. Isn’t it?

“Iconic Symbol”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

The Obelisk is an important landmark of São Paulo,but does not warrant a visit on its own. If you go to Ibirapuera Park you will see it and by right by it. There is a masoleum below it - but you can't go in unless you are family.

A lot of grass and the landmark. You can drive by it.

“Drive around it, at night...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

It is a scenic point of interest near Ibirapuera Park. Iluminated duringbthe night it resembles the monument on 9 of July Ave in Buenks Aires, and the other in Washington, DC. Used to have a museum below it in honor of some SP revolution heroes. I don't know if it is still open but the best way to enjoy it is driving around it during the night!
