Calm, green and refreshing, the city's botanical garden, situated inside the immense Parque Estadual Fontes do Ipiranga (PEFI) on the south side of town, provides a beautifully appointed sanctuary for thousands of tropical plant and animal species. The garden opened in 1938 to preserve part of the remaining Atlantic coastal forest, and it functions as a research facility focusing on Brazilian flora and fauna. The garden also shelters the source of the Rio Ipiranga, which figures heavily into national patriotic lore.

This is a "must" if you go to Sao Paulo! It has so beautiful sightseeings that people can avoid taking photos all the time! It has a small pool with plants and flowers on it, surrounded by tall trees and palm trees. You can easily go for a walk around the park, on plain trails, trees and plants are identified... More

This is a magnificent green belt in the middle of Sao Paulo. Well maintained and easy walking for the most part. Very popular with locals who want to see something green growing among the many cement high rises. Sao Paulo has 30, yes 30, million people in its metro area. It is not the leafy Amazon jungle that you might... More

A good day out for all the family. Despite being autumn at the time of our visit there were still lots of lovely plants to see including some stunning lilies on the lake. Lovely surroundings and a variety of different areas to explore including a trail, museum and orchid collection. They have a very nice self service buffet lunch. Good... More

Cheap to get in and great for a picnic or walk around to get away from all the noise and traffic of the city. There are 2 green houses some lakes and a jungle walk with apes. Cafe on site for that drink in then sun.

If you have one hour free, spend it here: you will relax and enjoy. They also have a good coffee and is not far from other nice places to visit.

Although of difficult access is a very nice place to spend the day and getaway from the city madness. The place has a good restaurant and a complete infrastructure for the visitor.

Sao Paulo never sleeps, has a frenetic pace of life, endless queues of traffic, indescribable one-way systems and never-ending graffiti-but we both love it nevertheless. What is needed is this harbour of tranquillity and calm. OK-frequent parties of excited schoolchildren in full voice but they just give the place a joyful sound. Quite large with a long wooded walkway at... More

The only thing I can come to think of to complain about is the weather which was a bit too hot. And there is not much to do about that! The Jardim Botanico is a beautiful place where you could easily spend a whole day, it is both relaxing and educational. There are plenty of places to have a pique-nique,... More

unlike European zoos, the clima allows to present most animals in outdoor settings (cages, fenced areas, open lake). Some zoo birds even intermingle with migratory birds that use the Sao Paulo zoo to hop on

Pretty, peaceful & relaxing. Worth a visit, a peace of beautiful nature in hectic, busy São Paulo... Expected it to be a bit bigger though
