Agostinho Neto Mausoleum is a rocket-like tower in Luanda City with a remarkable architectonic and historical importance for the Angolan people.

Built in honor of the first President of Angola, the Agostinho Neto Mausoleum located in “Praia do Bispo”, behind the Presidential Palace, about 2½ km (1½ miles) from Luanda downtown.

The tower can be viewed and admired from several points in the city. The imposing monument tower structure shooting above the city, was named “Agostinho Neto Cultural Center” in 2002.

Agostinho Neto Cultural Center, currently in a complete remodeling process, is a national attraction park with about 12,000 square meters of land, expected to be a potential sightseeing in Luanda, the Angolan Capital.

Agostinho Neto (September 17, 1922 – September 10, 1979) was a physician and the first president of Angola (1975–1979), a poet and nationalist leader.

Internationally, Antonio Agostinho Neto attained his principles of non-alliance and national independence, as he considered them as "essential stones in the politics of the People's Republic of Angola and necessary factors for the political, economic and social development of the country."

The international recognition of Neto as an outstanding African leader was expressed by a number of awards, such as the Gold Medal of the World's Peace Council, Julie Curie in 1976, Honoris Cause of Lagos University (Nigeria), and Honorary Citizen of Mozambique, among others.
