The Latin America Memorial (in Portuguese, Memorial da América Latina) is a cultural, political and leisure complex, inaugurated in 1989, in São Paulo, Brazil. The architectural setting, designed by Oscar Niemeyer, is a monument to the cultural, political, social and economic integration of Latin America, spanning an area of 84,482 square meters. Its cultural project was developed by Brazilian anthropologist Darcy Ribeiro. It is a public foundation, financially and administratively autonomous, maintained by the state government.
The architectural complex consists of several buildings arranged around two squares. It comprises: Salão de Atos Tiradentes (Tiradentes "hall of acts"), the Victor Civita Latin American Library, the Brazilian Center of Latin American Studies, the Marta Traba Gallery of Latin American Art, the Pavilhão da Criatividade ("creativity pavilion"), the Símon Bolívar Auditorium, and the Latin American Parliament building. In the main square (Praça Cívica), there is a large concrete sculpture, also designed by Oscar Niemeyer, representing an open hand in vertical position, with the map of Latin America painted in red. It's a symbol of Latin America's past of oppression and its battles for freedom, with the red map as a reminder of the blood from the sacrifices that were made.

Like all Niemeyer creations, it's all concrete and glass. No green areas whatsoever. A must see in Sampa. Great exibits! But don't forget the sunscreen...

I came here to see the Bolivia in Brazil Festival. The festival was great, but the venue was just okay. The building needs to be repainted or cleaned. There was no where to wash hands but 20 vendors were selling food.

Os eventos são superlotados e a estrutura nao dá conta, mas sempre tem boas opções de food trucks e cervejas

The place is okay, but rather barebones, nothing really comfortable or nice about it. It's just a big, empty space that feels cheap.

A place to be visited in Sao Paulo, specially for it architecture and thematic pavilions (library and Latin America permanent exhibition). The space also hold special gastronomy events, as for beer, burger and so on.
