We visited with s group and enjoyed the extensive monument. The views from above to the parliament are good and the grounds are nice. It is worth seeing all the statues inside too. No pictures allowed inside but nice to see.

This must be one of the largest monuments to any communist leader in the world. I can only imagine it costing a small fortune to erect. You cannot miss it either on the skyline or driving around the parliament area

Good to laern a little of Angola war history and revolution period. Also you can see the tomb of the first president and learning about the simbols represented in the flag and how each industry is represented (mining, agro, etc)
