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.

I spent the day at Jardim Botanico in São Paulo and I sat with turtles, saw huge lizards, birds, and some other animal I can’t name. They have a lunch center there too. I took two trains, a subway, and an Uber to get there....More

The garden is located in a relatively nice nighbourhood of São Paulo so safety isn't a big concern. The place is well preserved and retains many aspects of it's original plan from the 1920's. A beautiful place where couples or families can enjoy.

Sunday afternoon in São Paulo, leisure time in botanical gardens mid business trip. The gardens are a marvellous oasis amongst a crazy congested city of 25 million people. Not as splendid as Kew or Cambridge in England but the contrast with the city is stunning...More
