    Close to the Domestic Airport along the waterfront one can find the World War II monument, honoring the Brazilians that were killed during the Second World War. Brazil was part of the Allied forces that fought in that war.

    This is the memorial to the Brazilian expeditionary force that fought along with other allies in Italy. Inside there is a museum, and underneath a mausoleum of fallen heroes.
