Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia
(4.5/5 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.

  • 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!

  • On known Don Bosco Chapel has the option to meet the sanctuary, which is well hidden, to enjoy the Lake and even take a dip or simply take Sun to who likes adventure, have the tracks. Is well frequented by young people who give a show of courage to go down the "ramp" at full speed skateboard, roller skates and even bike and walk straight into the Lake.

  • Good place to hang out with family or friends. Woody, with space for hiking, cycling and bathe in the Lake.
