4.5
#2 of 8 in Nature in Sao Paulo
With 8,000 hA (19,768 A) of coastal forest skirting the Atlantic, the lush Parque Estadual da Cantareira is a paradise for hikers and birdwatchers.

One of the more frequaentados parks of the Capital. There is still possible to collect natural water it spouts. Umaresidencia where in the past there was the site of governadoresde of São Paulo. Later transformed into a residence to host authorities of other countries that came to visit São Paulo officially. Today it hosts only a museum. Currently closed due to suspected yellow fever.

  • There are several hiking trails within the Park, I went to the big rock, clear water and the Lake of carp. The Park is well maintained and clean, in the big rock has a view of the city, was on the trail of tb clear waters where there is a small waterfall with crystal clear waters and finally passed the Lake of carp, a great place to picnic and rest Since within the park there is no snack bars. You have to have a lot of willingness to walk in the Park, because the tracks are long, but it was very worthwhile.
