Create an itinerary including Jardim Botanico de Curitiba
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.

  • magnificent gardens. well kept and mostly native plants. The new installations with the 4 season tube and cafe is great. Also go to the exhibition of botanical drawings at the exhibition centre. Veautiful calendars for sale... as well as cups and bags
  • Well worth the visit! Immaculately kept botanical gardens with a beautiful greenhouse. There’s also a new “four seasons” walkway that has recently been installed behind the glass house. This is also really lovely, with a wide selection of tropical plants, sculptures and covered walkway. There’s also other shaded areas, a sensory garden as well as lakes and forests.
