Marco da luta dos paulistas: esse monumento é cheio de simbolismos e história! O formato do Obelisco significa uma espada cravada no coração de SP. Informe-se sobre a visita guiada, pois VALE A PENA!

Ótimo lugar para ser visitado em SP. Entretanto confira os dias que o Mausoléu está aberto, por enquanto são apenas alguns dias por ano.
