The Sao Paulo Independence Park is made up of museums, gardens, Independence Square and the Independence Monument. In August 1989, it was declared one of the archaeological and cultural heritage of Brazil. In 1822, Brazil declared independence in Sao Paulo. In front of the museum, the Independence Square and the monument we saw were built to commemorate the 100th anniversary of independence. The characters and bronze statues on the tablet are commemorating Pedro I and famous people who contributed to the independence of Brazil. The basement of the monument houses the coffin of King Pedro and the Queen. The flame of the monument does not go out all the year round, echoing the Brazilian flag fluttering in the wind.
