About
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.

Very pleasant to spend some tien and relax
Jan 2021 • Couples
Ota quite relaxing the cintact with the nature.
Can be a good option to take a walk here or bring a book, some snacks and chill out among the nature.
The tocket price is R$10. You may take two hours if you just pass by, without really stop and relax.

Gardens and peaceful place

Wonderful place to relax and take beautiful pictures

Even if it not easily accessible by metro and public transportation, it is worth the visit. You forget this chaotic city as soon as you enter the botanical garden. You do not hear the surrounding noise of the city.
You can walk on asphalted road or non asphalted ones and enjoy a large variety of vegetation.
There is a very good self-service restaurant inside the park, much better than what you would expect in a place where you have no option to chose.

Beautiful walking trails
Jul 2019 • Couples
Very peaceful setting with lots of trails winding through the wooded areas. It feels like you’re walking through the Amazon jungle—you may even spy howler monkeys or sloths in the trees!

Howler monkeys
Jun 2019 • Solo
Reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, I hoped to see an armadillo here, and maybe a sloth. Agoutis, monkeys, lizzards would be a bonus to me. At first I was disappointed. Having made my way through three quarters of the park I hadn't seen any of these animals. But then I saw some monkeys, and then a different monkey species, and then howler monkeys announced themselves with their typical sound. They were a bit off the tourist path, but could just be seen. After food around 15.00, I went for another round, and saw the three types of monkeys again, the highlight being the howler monkeys at the far end of the park, at the trilha da Nascente. This time they were right next to the path, up in some high trees.

The greenhouses have some interesting exhibits, such as the skeleton of a maned wolf, and eggs of the 'ema'-bird, a Brazilian walking bird, like a small ostrich or emu.

Favorite Spot in the City!
Apr 2019 • Solo
This botanical gardens were hands down my favorite place that I’ve visited in São Paulo! First off, it’s incredibly affordable to get in. Second, the further you walk into the gardens, the more breathtaking it gets. There are tons of park benches where you can take a seat and soak it all in. I spent a good amount of time just sitting and watching the turtles swim around in a pond. Bring your lunch and a good book and enjoy a wonderful afternoon surrounded by beauty. I’ll definitely be coming back before I leave.

A beautiful botanical garden in the middle of the city!
Mar 2018
Just on a whim we decided to visit the park. What a surprise! This botanical park is really nice and a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The glass houses were bursting with tropical plants, there were monkeys in the trees, the lake is lovely, and the trails are easy to walk and plentiful. I will definitely visit again.

An welcome escape into nature in Sao Paulo city.
Sep 2018 • Solo
The Botanical Gardens in Sao Paulo are quite well developed and contain a large tract of closed forest as well as well appointed gardens and expansive park areas. There are many semi-secluded areas for visitors to put space between each other for a picnic or just relax on the lawn. In addition to a wide variety of plants including an orchid house it was suprising to see the wildlife there including Howler Monkeys and Toucans. I will be going back for respite and to enjoy and learn more about Brazillian plants.
