As we were walking down one of the busiest streets in Sao Paulo (Avenida Paulista), we stumbled across Trianon Park. A beautiful place with lots of trees, wide walking paths and tons of benches. It was a welcome respite from the crowded, dirty city so we strolled a bit and took some pics.
This statue is at the entrance of the park and is of one of the most famous bandeirantes of Sao Paulo. The bandeirantes were men who captured slaves for the immigrants moving into the area. Bad men.
