A quick passing will be sufficient for the place. Is the middle of South America, but not the inhabitants now about this. Put the name at google maps and spend 5 min there. Make sure to do a 360º at the monument, that will mean...More

For a monument with such greatness, it's not worth visiting. They could do better about being in the center of South America.

The place is full of symbolism, but there is not much to be seen apart from the obelisk and Cuiabá's municipal legislative headquarters. Besides that, there seems to be an eternal dispute over the actual geodesic center of South America.

The monument is nice enough, but not the real geodesic centre of South America. This one is the one worked out by Rondon in the early 20th century and so needs to be recorded. However, the real centre is 30 km away from Chapada dos...More

I say that because depends of your perspective. The South-American Geodesic Center is just a monument which has an important meaning. Cuiába, the Mato Grosso capital is a historical city surrounded by natural beauties, very nice people, culture, strong agriculture and very nice birds. I...More

Very interesting. Besides the very tall monument marking the center of South America, there are circle plaques around the monument indicating direction and distance of well known cities in Brazil. It's worth a visit.

Before leaving Brazil, I walked around the old town Cuiaba early in the morning with my friends. First place I reached was Geodesic Center of South America. The tower was so impressive. The guy, probably the clerk of this facility, was so kind . He...More

Based on the photos it's hard to tell whether this attraction refers to the obelisk in downtown Cuiabá or the viewpoint 1.5hrs away. In any case, I visited both. The obelisk downtown actually seems more legit as the 'Geodesic Centre of South America' as it...More
