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.

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.

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 neighbourhood 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,
