Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia

(400+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
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.

  • As good, I love the Hermitage for a swim on a hot day, my children also love entering the Lake. Said to be the cleanest Lake; I thought the Ermida great to spend a morning or evening admiring the sunset, good also for sports.
