“Nature well preserved and nicely displayed”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Very close to downtown - only 5 min by taxi or 20 min by walking - the Mangal has different environments where the visitor can see plants, birds, butterflies, orchids in a very clean and well preserved site. Also there is a tower - called lighthouse - reached by an elevator where you can see the city from the top and have a better idea of the relation between the waterways and the land. There is no fee to enter, only small amount for the butterfly greenhouse and the tower. Citizen over 60 years don't pay. Finally there is a very good restaurant, in a buffet system for lunch, with many local options - mainly fish.

“The best touristic and gastronomical place in Belém!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is an area flooded by the river with lots of natural ecosystem (fauna and flora) to be appreciated. They have a good restaurant, in an all-you-can-eat buffet style, but that serves perhaps the best food in town. Try the different river fishes for a regional experience. But they offer everything regional you can find in Belém, in addition to international cuisine.

“A must for the nature lovers”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

It was a bit out of the way, but worth the time to get there. Although the facilities are in need of some love and care, the different spaces with amazing birds make it all very interesting and great for photos. We explored the aviaries, the tower and the little walk. We also tasted local delicacies and amazon fruit ice cream at the food stall in a very nice and relaxed atmosphere.
