Ibirapuera Park

One of the largest parks in Latin America and the largest green space in São Paulo, Ibirapuera Park has many points of interest. Most buildings were designed by Oscar Niemayer and the gardens by Roberto Burle Marx, renowned Brazilian architects and landscape artists. The Modern Art Museum of São Paulo (MAM) is located inside the park. Built in 1948, it has more than 4000 works of art, mostly Brazilian. You will also find an impressive collection 1960s paintings, sculptures and Brazilian artifacts in the Museum of Contemporary Art. The park also holds book and art biennials. There is plenty to do, trails to explore, cycle/skate paths, or just rest under a tree shade, people or bird watching or catch some sunrays by the lake. Go see the Bamboo Garden, climb the bridge at sunset and take some memorable photographs. Such is the size and tranquility of Ibirapuera Park you may well forget you are right in the middle of such an enormous and busy city like São Paulo.
