Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, Curitiba

4.7
As you pass through the entryway gates at Jardim Botanico de Curitiba, you'll see the unmistakable Art Nouveau greenhouse that resembles the 19th-century Crystal Palace in London. Fountains, ponds, and waterfalls intersperse the gardens planted in French style. Tropical plants, many of which are rare, reside in the greenhouse alongside palms and native plants. The Botanic Museum provides a collection of native flora and botanical species from the Atlantic forests, which attracts researchers from all around the world.

Strolling along the paths brings you past native forest trees, gardens with native flowers, and 114 sculptural works, like "A Mãe" (The Mother). The Museum of Franz Krajcberg behind the greenhouse features the artist's collection and other artistic works including sculptures, art, and reliefs, as well as publications, photographs, educational materials, and videos. Walking across the wooden bridge towards the other side of the park brings you to the large herbarium in the Botanical Museum housed in a timber building. Surrounding the building is a lake, a library, an auditorium, a theater, an exposition area, tennis courts, and a cycling track, to name a few of the attractions. Children especially love to peer into the pond out front to identify carp, herons, teal, and turtles.

  • The gardens well cared for but with attractions in retirement and areas do not open on Monday easy to park

  • JARDIM BOTANICO DE CURITIBA is a perfect place for a sunny day walk! Although the greenhouse is in renovations, it is worth the visit and a hot hike! Recommend!

  • This is a beautiful park. As a botanical garden it is ok but not great. The signage on the plants is mediocre at best. However, the grounds are very well kept and it is pretty. The garden is a great place to have a picnic with your loved one(s) or to spend a peaceful hour or two. It is not a great place to see and learn about a wide variety of plants and flowers.
  • Very beautiful place with lots of flowers and nature around it. Unfortunately the main building was closed for repair when I visited it, but still the visit was totally worth it. They also have a tourist information building which is very helpful. Parking is free.
