It is a must-go for anyone visiting Porto Alegre just because it is a symbol of the city, but don't spend too much time here. It is just a statue after all, but quite pretty for one :) An icon of Gaúcho culture!

Jast a statue close to the airport. Not very big and not impressive. I wouldn't recommend to stop there.

It is a cultural symbol of Rio Grande do Sul, as it represents the Gaucho. The Laçador by itself does not make sense to visit, but if you want a photograph that represent the truly soul of the people who lives in Rio Grande it...More

It is located near to the airport, in a small park made just for it, represents the typical brazilian gaucho and their garments, the gentleman that pose for it, still living in Porto Alegre.
