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.

Sunday afternoon in São Paulo, leisure time in botanical gardens mid business trip. The gardens are a marvellous oasis amongst a crazy congested city of 25 million people. Not as splendid as Kew or Cambridge in England but the contrast with the city is stunning...More
