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.

“Partly a jungle in the city....or is it the other way around...”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Nice paths under the watchful eye of security...
Lovers lane was interesting...but forlorn
It's no Central Park , but it wasn't mention to be.

“Very pleasant!”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

I've been to Jardim Botânico many times. I enjoy having picnics there with the kids, or just sit on a bench and read a good book. It is very peaceful, and truly beautiful.

“Unbelievable”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It is really unbelievable how beautifull this place is. I thought I was in Europe. Great place if you like nature and it is pretty close to the downtown.

“picnic spot”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

it is a green spot just outside the concrete jungle of the city and seems to be a favorite for the locals. but it is definitely rewarding for the tourist as well and walking through the greenery enjoying the constant bird calls is a relaxing experience
