Senna's Grave Morumbi Cemetery, Sao Paulo

3.8
You will find Senna's Grave Morumbi Cemetery at the center of São Paulo's exclusive Morumbi cemetery, under a beautiful flowering tree. The simple plaque, inscribed with “nothing can separate me from the love of God”, is permanently decorated with flowers, flags, and tributes to the three-times world champion and arguably Brazil's most loved national hero. Less ornate than most Roman Catholic graveyards, Morumbi cemetery is more a tranquil garden of remembrance, and, as you take a stroll, you will also see the final resting place of Elis Regina, widely regarded as one of the best Brazilian singers of all time.

  • I chose today's date for once again visit the Morumby Park Cemetery because it is exactly 25 years without our tri Champion Ayrton Senna. Although it is a cemetery, only the tomb of Ayrton Senna annually attracts dozens of school excursions and tourists from all over the world. Today May 1, 2019 are 25 years old but... It seems that it was today because Ayrton looked like a family person and with his humble pride in sporting the flag of Brazil with each victory conquered us all. The cemetery is enormous and has more than 300,000 square meters but I do not see it as a place of sadness but of peace and meditation. In the cemetery are buried more than 20 famous personalities and artists, among them Wilson Simonal and Elis Regina. They say "No one is irreplaceable" but... Until today no one has occupied the vacancy of our Eternal Champion. Time passes and nostalgia stays. I recommend the visit because it is not a place of sadness but rather of sweet memories.

  • Indescribable emotion, beautiful place of great peace and tranquility..... Had the desire to know the tomb of the largest Brazilian I have ever known, and today 28.04. 2019 I had the opportunity to take my son who dreamed of being able to see the tomb, because he at the age of 12 is just a big fan and it was very exciting for us to be together alongside him... Rest our hero's peace....
