A large city deserves a large park and Parque do Ibirapuera is undoubtedly huge. This is where Paulistanos, the inhabitants of São Paulo, flock to escape the city traffic. The park is not only perfect for a leisurely stroll or a relaxed picnic, it is also a cultural hotspot.
Landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx (1909-1994) designed the park in the 1950s together with modernist Oscar Niemeyer (1907-2012). Ibirapuera Park was built to commemorate the 400th anniversary of São Paulo. The combination of greenery and culture makes Ibirapuera one of Brazil’s most beloved parks.
