Parque Estadual da Cantareira, Sao Paulo

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. The park is dotted with clean lakes fit for swimming, but one of the best highlights is the spectacular view of the city below. You’ll also find the summer mansion of São Paulo’s state governors located here. Keep your ears open for the music of the birds in the trees and look for the monument to the Tropic of Capricorn that runs through the forest.

  • Park to hike on the trail but not worth the effort. Climb the pico do Jaraguá is more exciting and beautiful.
