In a city that is overflowing with great parks, this one, the Parque da Cidade is unique, for it offers the visitor the Museu Histórico da Cidade. You can go there to learn all about the building of this mammoth metropolis. The exhibit includes paintings, medals, weapons, photos, as well as information relating to city history and planning, contained within a two-floor 19th-century house that was once owned by the Marquês de São Vicente. After taking in the museum, the park itself contains serene greenery.
