Jardim Botanico de Sao Paulo or Botanical Garden of Sao Paulo is a must-visit place for nature lovers. It was established by Frederico Carlos Hoehne – a passionate naturalist – in 1928 and opened for public after a decade in 1938. Spread in an area of 143 hectare, the garden forms a part of the Botanical Institute of Sao Paulo. Its greenery houses over 380 species of plants and trees for research and conservation. While strolling through this place you might get to spot a few animals, such as, green-billed toucans, sloths, monkeys and rodents living in their natural habitat.
On your visit, you will first encounter Alameda Fernando Costa – a building made from reforested wood which offers a spectacular view of the natural forest and clear stream of Pirarungáua. Other places of interest within the premises include the Botanical Museum – where specimens of countless plants are displayed; Garden of Linnaeus – an attractive staircase dating back to 1928; Lake of the Nymphs – cornered on one side of the park, it is formed by damming the Pirarungáua Creek and a tributary of the Ipiranga Creek.
