If you are not the kind of modern districts and shopping centers addicted person you will enjoy the historical center of Curitiba. This is where the heart of Curitiba beats. It is animated during the day with a lot of people having a coffee or a beer in the pedestrian main street. But also at night where people enjoy the... More

This was a very photographic area with some of the buildings being very old and well looked after and some still being renovated to keep the historical appeal. The area is very clean and well looked after and a nice break from some of the modern areas which don't have the same appeal. The area is very safe but there... More

The central zone worth a visit: it has a lot of churches (including the cathedral with the neo gothic style), old portuguese-style buildings, italian and german clubs and associations (as Garibaldi and Concordia), a stunning and renovated old municipality (Paço Municipal) in neoclassic style with art-noveau details. Rua XV is close and have a nice boulevard with a popular commercial... More

One could easily spend hours walking around and looking at the buildings in the historic centre, they are all within walking distance of each other and the best part is that it's free to stand and look at them! Well worth a visit. Curitiba is a city that many pass by when backpacking but I'm glad we stopped here for... More

Take a map and look for all the squares in the city you can walk from one to another and with that you will have a great view of the entire city, we did a 2 hours walk visiting 20 fountains, amazing!

Nice place but requires a significant amount of attention because the area is infested with thieves and drug-related activities. Even in the daylight visitors must exercise common sense and avoid empty blocks and streets. In the dark, is absolutely not recommended to walk outside the district's main street (the stone paved one and pedestrial only). Always ask for a taxi... More

Beautiful colonial houses, buldings and churchs, some of them restored for another uses, some of them preserved as heritage. Great place for knowing Curitiba's origins, and a nice place to go on Sunday mornings, when the artisan's fair takes place (till 2 pm).

The area around Largo da Ordem are mostly pedestrian. Street artists could be seen all day and on Sundays a great flea market allow you to see beautiful antiquities, folk art, regional food, and so on. But if you prefer good gastronomy, there you will find it too.
