Designed by prolific Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer as a monument to the sociocultural and political unity of Latin America, and punctuated by a large modernist statue of a bleeding hand, the Memorial da América Latina is one of the more underrated attractions in the city. The collection of pavilions and galleries houses paintings, sculptures and folk art, along with a rotating schedule of performances and events, like the annual São Paulo Latin American Cinema Festival. Don't miss the giant, whimsical relief map of Latin America underneath the glass floor.

A nice place build by the famous Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer. It is also the home of the great "Orquestra jazz sinfonica" a big jazz orchestra of young musicians.

Wonderful place to walk around, it seems (to me) safe and it is a group of buildings and pieces of art to be admired.
