The final resting place of the first president of Angola is both an interesting architectural monument on true grande communist/Soviet style (symbolizing a space ship/rocket according to the guide) and as a display of the history surrounding Neto. There was an English speaking sympathetic guide who showed us around the museum located in multiple floors. For anyone interested in the... 更多
The monument, a memorial to former President Agostinho Neto is astonishing and you can see it from several points of the city. I tried to see the interior in several occasions with no success, the guards of this heavy secure location always said its closed.
This is one of those places that have the potential to be an amazing milestone in Angola . It is located in a very privileged and secure area, near the new "Assembleia da Republica " New Marginal, Presidential Palace, etc. Almost nothing happens there.

Since we were told photograph... 更多

Quite an impressive building built for Angola’s first president and founding father who died in 1979. A Russian designed building it stands 120m tall and seems to represent the era of space rockets. Inside the mausoleum is a museum portraying the life of Dr. Neto, plus his final resting place. There's a lot of wasted space in this mausoleum. From... 更多
Sorry that we could not get in. He was truly a great man for his people and the monument reflects this. However, the guards would not let us in to pay our respect and walk around.
