A very pretty park where you walk around a small forest with small posters telling you the story of Hansel and Gretel. It's also got a nice portal and a beautiful view of the city. I haven't been there in a while, but there used to be a very nice place to eat cakes and pies on the upper part... More

Bring kids to listen to the witch stories during weekends. They love it. After that you can eat and rest a little bit upstairs. You can easily arrive with the tourism bus.

Beautiful garden. Story teller's house is popular weekend attraction with students from the local Performing Arts School putting on performances for children - unfortunately only in Portuguese. Best honey bread and pie in town at the snack bar.

Nothing interesting there, it's a cute place in a upscale neighborhood but not worth your time. It's just a path in the woods.
