  • Unfortunately the Park is closed for years ... it used to be possible to visit it but also there was nothing interesting. Just a stream very badly maintained. A shame

  • Unfortunately the Garden is closed to visitation, internal but walking around the same is already very good. Super nice location.

  • When my kids were little, we visited often this horto florestal. They loved (and us too) by wide vegetation, lakes and wildlife found there.
