Overview
More
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.

We spent an afternoon at the botanical garden and it was quite a treat. We felt like we were right in the rain forest and got to see so many of the native plants in the area. We even saw monkeys hopping between the trees...More

Great place to take a long walk, relatively easy to walk, although there are a couple of hilly paths off of the main paved walkway. You will see amazing tropical flowers and plants, water lilies, butterflies everywhere, a tunnel of bamboo that was amazing, and...More

I love to go to Botanico with my wife, the last time my mother-in-low came along and it was, as always a good pass time. The worst thing is that they still only take cash! My in-low is over 60 y/o and got a discount....More
