Nature / Park
Minutes away from the city’s best hotels and beaches, Moscoso Park contains a number of lakes, a small zoo, an amusement park, a chapel, and a water fountain which is illuminated at night. In the heart of a busy city, the park is frequented by locals and tourists as a place of relaxation and recreation away from busy traffic. Take a long walk across the park’s manicured green lawns, or have a picnic with friends and family in a peaceful setting. A large playground area is set up for children, while adults have access to a well-equipped fitness center. There are snack bars scattered across the park, as well as a small library inside an antique train wagon, always a fun stop for children.

  • This is the oldest park in the city and one of the most cherished by the population. For those who live, work or taking a stroll in the Park Centre meltdown Moscoso is an oasis. Have a super nice vegetation, hiking trail, playground for children, tables for checkers. The Park is well watch it and is a great place to take kids, walk and eat a little popcorn ball. The site has a small shell including bleachers, which I never understood because it is not used.

  • A calm within today's bustling city is hard to find. But Parque Moscoso more than adequately provides that solace and has done so for the last century. As a bonus it's nestled among many examples of early 1900's architecture that beckon a time of grace & civility. Walk the Park's perimeter and the surrounding neighborhood amplifies the experience. The Park's layout/design is superior in creating gathering points or intersections for thru-pedestrian visits, events & while other areas offer creative, lush, varied noise-absorbing landscaping for a respite from normal urban activity. Board game players (checkers, dominoes, cards) are rewarded with ample space, while children's play areas & fitness equipment are also plentiful in this studiously planned, relaxing open-space. There's an open patio restaurant that attracts workers at lunchtime along with several food/beverage vendors about. The water pools wind their way creating seating islands connected by artfully tree-limbed footbridges to give the park further sensory depth in an ideal Park experience.
  • A beautiful place in the middle of the city, quiet and great for kids to play. Needs a bit more attention from authorities regarding maintenance but still a great place
  • It's the most traditional park in town. Had it's glorious time 40 years ago. Today needs more attention from public authorities but still holds its charm.
  • Fountains were dry because of drought. Everything else is fine.
  • A nice place, it needs more care from the public authorities

Where to stay in Vitoria

The two main neighborhoods to stay in when exploring Vitoria are Praia do Canto and the area close to Parque Moscoco. Hotels dominate the selection here, with simple rooms in chain and independent lodgings, alongside luxury options. Budget-conscious travelers will find side street hostels appealing, as well as the more basic among the collection of pousadas (guesthouses) in the city. Stay closer to the airport, or the main bridges leading off the island, if you wish to get out of town on a regular basis to explore other areas of the state.
