Outside the city. Nature, spirituality, delicious vegetarian food/ lunch (saturday and sunday only). Small shop, coffee bar, nice big garden. Difficult to reach by public transportation. Worth to visit.

A good day trip from Sâo Paulo, you can go there for lunch or coffee. Entrance is free. But is better to visit on a weekend.
