Attraction details
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.

“Trip to the big garden”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I visited the gardens with a very special local friend of mine a couple of years ago and found it a great location to get away from the big city of Sao Paulo.
The park was well kept and safe and suitable facilities for all your needs.
Take a blanket and a book and lay on the grass and absorb the surroundings and sounds of the park.
I highly recommend the park, with someone special it makes for a great relaxing day.

“Nice place for contact with nature!”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

The garden itself is amazing but my favourite attraction is watching the monkeys on the back part of the garden. The sound they make is both frightening and delighting! Kids also love to have some space to run around.

“Best feelings of the Rain Forest for a day, if you´re close to it.”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I love this place but it´s out of downtown and surroundings... Very nice vibe of native tropical Rain Forest, really awesome place to hang-out and breath good air in the concreted Sao Paulo.
Beautiful Orchidary, amazing vegetation and good food avaiable for lunch.
