Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia

4.5
#7 of 10 in Parks in Brasilia
Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco is on the shores of Lake Paranoá, where you will find the small, white marble chapel honoring São João Belchoir Bosco, Brasilia’s patron saint. Designed by Oscar Niemeyer, this temple, the first in the city, takes the shape of a pyramid with a metal cross at the top, and inside you will see an image of the saint carved in Carrera marble. The location is far from random, being where Don Bosco dreamt of a utopian capital, and you have privileged views of both the city and the surrounding park full of native flora and fauna; here you can follow the many trails, take a bike ride, swim in the lake, or enjoy a picnic in this beautiful, unspoiled setting. To plan Brasilia vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Very good location for walking and hiking trails, I had never seen this way, thanks very much, even we could swim in the Lake, has a pier very good for swimming. I highly recommend. Many good photos.

  • What was once just "Chapel of Don Bosco" was extended, incorporated a beautiful area on the shores of Lake Paranoa and became the Dom Bosco ecological park. A beautiful place that combines the religious value to the contact with nature. Even with little infrastructure and good option for people who want to have your right to leisure without spending money. Recommend to visit Yes!
