  • Incredible place, full of history and wonderful garden. Is a park so you can with your dog or make exercise. Its beautiful for taking pictures too
  • One of the most historical parks in São Paulo. Hosts a big Palace (which I couldn't visit due to maintenance restrictions), some museums and a mausoleum with the supposed tomb of the founder of the Brazilian Republic and his wife. If you want to reach it via public transportation, the nearest metro is very far, so buses are the best option.
