The Cantareira State Park has one of the largest green areas in urban areas in the world. With almost 8000 hectares of Atlantic Forest, the park, intended primarily to ecotourism, is home to several animal and plant species – some even endangered – and it is listed by Unesco.
For those who like to play sports and enjoy good times amid the outdoors and nature, the park is the ideal place. Inside the giant Serra da Cantareira, the park is divided into nuclei, which have picnic area, toilets and guided tours.
