  • This Park is located where the old farm and industrial park of Blankets Parahyba. This company came to dominate 80 percent of the Brazilian market of blankets in 60 years. The location is very nice both visually and for tours between the century-old trees and palm trees. Is also worth visiting the old family residence Garcia, very modern for the time it was built in the years 50.

  • The Roberto Burle Marx City Park gets its name from the renowned Landscaper, that in the heydays of the Olivo Gomes, was part of an imposing heritage. With a privileged location, next to the city center, the location is ideal for a walk, picnic on the grass or in the various tables of recycled wood arranged in the Park. For anyone who has a dog friend, in its dependencies also works the largest dog park of Brazil, 4-legged Space, open from Tuesday to Sunday, with access upon presentation of membership card. Burle Marx's work is featured in the garden of the family mansion, with its famous water mirrors. The mansion of Garcia is also a fine example of modernist architecture. Recently restored, she keeps rooms with Windows operated by handles. The painting of the renowned grinding wheel is also featured. But, don't forget to visit the mosaics of Burle Marx, arranged in bays on the front and at the back of the House. The City Park is an invitation to relaxation and contemplation of nature. Ideal for all types of ride, is with her boyfriend, alone, with friends, children and family.
