Its construction was the result of a public tendering made by Recife's city hall in 1988, which envisaged not only the construction of a monument which could represent the torture conditions and disrespect to human dignity to which the population was subjected during the Brazilian military government but also the revitalization of Recife since.
It was inaugurated in August 27, 1993, and it is, since then, considered to be one of the tourist attractions of Recife.
Tortura Nunca Mais Monument Reviews
The location is a bit deserted, but the monument is remarkable. An important sculpture to record the memory of a moment.
History to remember the horror that should never be repeated.
