Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Brasilia tourist route planner.

  • The ecological park has some trails and access to the Lake with pier. The Mirante da Ermida Dom Bosco allows you to view much of the Lake. Good place to go to enjoy the evening sunset has a structure of a bar and bathrooms.

  • The place is very visited by residents and tourists alike because it houses an important landmark of the city, the Ermida Dom Bosco. Today has some infrastructure and how it looks on the shores of Lake Paranoá, is quite used to the leisure of the population, especially on hot days. The view of the Lake and the Northern Peninsula is worthy of a postcard!

  • Little explored by Brasilia and frequented by tourists, the location is good for sightseeing, relax, have a lovely view of the city. Just leaves something to be desired in the bathroom and snacks, very little option.
