The park is great for a stroll, you feel in the middle of the jungle. There are birds and plants of many species and you can see them freely around. There is an observation tower, but we could not climb because the elevator was broken and the stairs were closed because according to the lady in the cashier 'we could... More

the park is located near the Ver o Peso market; it has good infra structure for visitors, an excellent restaurant, a good museum of Brazilian history; the view from the watch tower is magnificent; I recommend also the Butterfly complex, if possible with a guided tour.

Lovely safe park! Nice place to walk around, see some wildlife and relax. For small fee you can see the butterflies and go up the tour which has wonderful views of the river and city - worth it! The butterfly/hummingbird enclosure is nice, worth sitting down to enjoy being surrounded by the butterflies - I counted 6 species. Safe to... More

It was my first time at Belem, northern city of Brazil. I had always heard that the city used to be very hot due to humidity. And that's true! However the city has beautiful parks, museums and outside activities to do. Mangal is one of them. If you like contact with nature, plants, animals, silent place where you can relax... More

"Mangal das Garças" is a complex with short museum, butterfly nursery, a big garden and a restaurant. You can enjoy a good view from Guama river (Amazonas small arm) and some shadows under the trees. As the hit is in the limit of unsupport, it is better spending a day very calm, taking time to everything.

"Mangal das Garças" is a beautiful park in the outskirts of the "Old City" in Belém and on the banks of Guamá river. Although inaugurated only in 2005, it is already one of the city's top attractions, allowing visitors an amazing taste of the lush Amazon's nature, wildlife and flavors. Visiting is very easy and entry fees are charged for... More

I'm actually form Belem and Mangal das Garças is a place that I take all my friends when they come to my city. You don't have to pay to go inside, but if you want to see some attractions you'll have to pay, like the observatory (R$5,00), and the butterfly garden. They also have a great restaurant inside. But for... More
