Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, Curitiba

4.7
As you pass through the entryway gates at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, you'll see the unmistakable Art Nouveau greenhouse that resembles the 19th-century Crystal Palace in London. Fountains, ponds, and waterfalls intersperse the gardens planted in French style. Tropical plants, many of which are rare, reside in the greenhouse alongside palms and native plants. The Botanic Museum provides a collection of native flora and botanical species from the Atlantic forests, which attracts researchers from all around the world.

Strolling along the paths brings you past native forest trees, gardens with native flowers, and 114 sculptural works, like "A Mãe" (The Mother). The Museum of Franz Krajcberg behind the greenhouse features the artist's collection and other artistic works including sculptures, art, and reliefs, as well as publications, photographs, educational materials, and videos. Walking across the wooden bridge towards the other side of the park brings you to the large herbarium in the Botanical Museum housed in a timber building. Surrounding the building is a lake, a library, an auditorium, a theater, an exposition area, tennis courts, and a cycling track, to name a few of the attractions. Children especially love to peer into the pond out front to identify carp, herons, teal, and turtles.

  • JARDIM BOTANICO DE CURITIBA is a perfect place for a sunny day walk! Although the greenhouse is in renovations, it is worth the visit and a hot hike! Recommend!

Locar very nice, clean, beautiful and organized, must be very nice to live and Curitiba and be able to enjoy the weekends of a place like this.

  • This is a beautiful park. As a botanical garden it is ok but not great. The signage on the plants is mediocre at best. However, the grounds are very well kept and it is pretty. The garden is a great place to have a picnic with your loved one(s) or to spend a peaceful hour or two. It is not a great place to see and learn about a wide variety of plants and flowers.
  • Very beautiful place with lots of flowers and nature around it. Unfortunately the main building was closed for repair when I visited it, but still the visit was totally worth it. They also have a tourist information building which is very helpful. Parking is free.
  • Beautiful and absolutely stunning! Loved being here with my best friend who lives in Curitiba. It was fun and wonderful to see the large variety of plants. I hope to return and visit again.
  • Beautiful botanical park near to downtown with many species of native plants. The local is huge and appropriate for picnics. Also, who likes to appreciate the nature, the park can't be beat!
  • Very nicely kept. Unfortunately the greenhouse was closed when I were there but I saw many people working there keeping the place very nice and tidy. Would reccomend. Public bathrooms are actually quite clean as well. Great job guys
