Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia
(4.4/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • Open Park, on the edge of the Lake. Has a simple shrine, however, who has enough time in Brasilia, will see a beautiful sunset.

  • quiet place, where esculta the wind blows, the breeze off the Lake the birds singing, the freshness of the Lake.

  • In my opinion, this park has the best view of the Lake. Admission is free. Worth so much to make tracks like contemplating the view of the Lake. In warm weather you can even bathe in the Lake. It's a great place for a picnic!
