Santa Helena Eco Reserve

Ecological and sustainable development.
Santa Helena Eco Reserve

Influenced by the natural surroundings, more than one thousand metres above sea level, the Ecological Reserve of Santa Helena, in Brasilia, has been adapted to a rugged terrain, whose main views are Sobradinho and Planaltina. The proximity to Lake Paranoá encouraged the use of all available natural resources, with ecological considerations being taken into account throughout the operation of the enterprise.
