Parque Ecologico Dom Bosco, Brasilia

4.5
#7 of 10 in Parks in Brasilia
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. To plan Brasilia vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This Park belongs to the Instituto Brasília, Environmental responsible for your administration. In the past, practically only had the Chapel (small church in wilderness place) with a few public visitations. Don Bosco was an Italian priest who dreamed of with the birth of a new civilization, exactly in the geographical parallel the current delimiters Brasilia-Distrito Federal, Brazil's capital So your enthroned statue in the Chapel that borrows your name, by the way There are some other places in Brasilia who received your name too, including the Don Bosco College, the latter run by the Salesian Fathers, a Catholic organization created by Don Bosco. Its infrastructure is composed of parking lot, trails to walk, skate park and a place to bathe in own Paranoá Lake, hence the nickname of the beach. As Convenience has a bar and restrooms. Its most exalted is your location in a Highland that allows stunning views, almost 360o degree, part of Brasilia, and, at the end of the day, then provides a sunset to take the breath away, just missing the fôre Bolero by Ravel to rival your fellow of prai the Alligator's in Joao Pessoa. I suggest to the Instituto Brasília consider environmental and feasibility of drawing up a project of this type: maybe bars and the like, more observation decks, each other of course facing the West, maybe with some special musical performance, and may be born then another good "point" to the edge of the Lake, as we already have Decks South and North, even the Hulk, including embedding this idea in the announced new project from the edge of the Lake, with plates and panels affixed to the height of the Pontoon.

  • In addition to being a very beautiful location, breaks the branch in the absence of beach in brasília on hot days. Too bad a lot of people think the same, and always crowded haha.. It's worth spending to meet.

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.
