Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

“botanical garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

the visit to the botanical garden can be combined with the visit to the zoo because it is located in the same neighbourhood. There is a greenhouse with beautiful orchids.

“Beautiful place...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

Very calm and nice place to spend some good hours with family and friends...
There is a lot of space to picnic and some historical landscapes that really worth a visit.
It costs R$ 5 (adults), R$ 2,5 (senior and kids over 6 y´o) and young kids are free.

“Peace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

If you want a quiet place to rest, and enjoy the nature, it is an excellent option. Not so crowded as other parks in the city, it provides a better atmosphere. To be improved: more guides and guards would be welcome...

Close distance (2.5 miles) for a walk on a weekend, the park is full of nice people and families, visit the modern art museum. Buy an ice cream and enjoy the woods and views of Ibirapuera.
