A beautifully laid out botanical garden area with multitudes of plans & trees to admire. Old world, charm & peaceful. Worthy of pending a few hours strolling and relaxing away from the business of the city and beaches.

We have gone this garden with a friend group. Garden is not enough to tell this place. It is a very huge tropical jungle. Here is a summary of brasilian flora. There is lots of photographic scenery.
