See a Neighborhood Monument
Monumento a Castelo Branco in Parque Moinhos de Vento juts out of its grassy surroundings, a hard and angular reminder of Brazil’s first military dictator, Castelo Branco. The monument’s artist presents his vision of 3 soldiers standing together, just a little off-balance. This controversial historical marker is offset by well-shaded park benches, often occupied by Porto Alegre’s beautiful people sipping their beloved chimarrão, a mate herb tea.
