Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia

4.5
#8 of 11 in Parks in Brasilia
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.

Where to stay in Brasilia

Choosing where to stay during your trip to Brasilia can be somewhat difficult. Due to the city's distinctive layout and lack of a historical "center," accommodations have developed in clusters. By far the best range of options surrounds the distinctive green space of Jardim Burle Marx, in the city's two planned hotel districts. You can also find a good selection of lodgings around Vila Planalto, the city's designated political district, which sits not far from Brasilia's main lake. Wherever you decide to stay, make sure it's within reasonable distance of a metro station or bus stop--you'll want good access to public transport in order to easily navigate the city.

  • It's a very nice place to visit but one must avoid visiting during the weekend since it's most of the time overcrowded and not easy to park. All that said, enjoy the rather unique view.  more »
  • Went in the evening to see the sunset. Lots of locals swimming in the water and skateboarding in the trails. Nice place to take a stroll and look out at the city. Nice photo op in front of the big EU ...  more »
  • It really worth swing by 4 pm, sit down, relax and enjoy the sunset behind the pilot plan. Besides the sunset you get the nice view of the city, mainly the congress.  more »
