History in Curitiba?

by Henkster

Oi,
I will be passing through Curitiba on my Brasil trip at the end of the year. I am very interested in historic architecture. What does Curitiba have to offer? Like palacios or baroque churches? I have heard of an italian neighborhood, which has interesting architecture and many restaurants.

Unfortunately, when I see pictures of Brazilian cities, it usually only shows the skylines full of skyscrapers and tall buildings, and you know they basically all look the same...

Which other city in the south of Brazil do you strongly recommend visiting?
Obrigado!

Hello,

I'm not sure about its Architectural History, however, Curitiba is one of the world leaders for having an amazing Urban Transportation System.

You know how some cities, especially in North America, have pursued Light Rail Transit or heavy rail such as Subways, etc.

Well... Curitiba is considered to be the best example of a city that has amazing "Express Bus" Lanes and Routes. In fact, their system is so successful that most of their residents commute by bus as opposed to driving. It should be noted that Curitiba has one of the higher (cars per capita) in Brazil, YET, their residents still take the bus.

I've heard that their land use planning is state of the art too. Apparently their mayor for the past 20 years is a formally trained Urban Planner.

So there... watch for that.. and sorry about the lack of architectural info.

Well, the historic Curitiba is known as Praca da Ordem and its surroundings, where it was founded. There is a italian quarter named Santa Cecilia and a polish park. The Bothanical Garden and Opera de Arame are interesting buildings too. If you are interested in historic buildings I recommend you to see the Missions Ruins, world heritage in Rio Grande do Sul State.

I recommend you to go to Joinville, Blumenal, and São Joaquim in Santa Catarina State, and Gramado, Canela, Garibaldi, and Bento Gonçalves in Rio Grande do Sul State. Also the capitol cities of both states are worth of visiting.

Cheers,
Henry.

Hi..!
You are right - there are not many historical buildings in Curitiba besides
the Largo da Ordem area - that is the area where the village started to grow
in the XVII century.
Curitiba is known for its many imigrants - Germans, Polish, Italians etc. and also for its Green areas and many parks. The transpostation system is famous too..
There are parks in homage of the many foreigners that help build the city..the German Park - the Ukranian Park - the Polish Park - etc.
Check the address bellow for some pictures of my city - CURITIBA!

If you need any other tips...tell me!
Cheers
Luciana

PS: The Italian neighbourhood is called SANTA FELICIDADE - the place where I actually live..:)

Thanks a lot for the great link!
This neighborhood sounds very interesting. Curitiba does seem to have some very interesting buildings.
I wonder why Brazilians keep building so many of those extremely tall "modern" buildings right next to their historic heritage, which needs to be savoured.

Travel Tips for Curitiba

A good nightlife and beautiful parks

by Hissataka

The parks and the city organization are the best things about Curitiba. And there is "Teatro Ópera de Arame", an amazing architectural idea! The slight cold and the way the city resembles São Paulo (my hometown), just without so many people and the dirt.

German Woods (Bosque Alemão)

by ahoerner

Another gorgeous park built in the city in honor of the german immigrants who begin to settle in Curitiba in the early 1800's.

In the park visitors can walk on the trail of Hänsel und Gretel (after the tale of Brothers Grimm) and reach the gingerbread and candy house, where usually on saturday afternoons children listen to tales told by the crone that lives in the famous Brothers Grimm tale...

Interesting for kids for sure, but also for grownups looking for some silence, woods smells and some green.

"The eye" at Museu Oscar Niemeyer

by VdV

Here is a photo of "the eye" portion of the Museu Oscar Niemeyer. The architect's works and archives are housed in this "study center." This portion was closed during my visit in January 2004; call ahead or ask onsite to check availability to public.

Hours of operation for the museum in general:

Tuesday - Sunday, 1:30pm - 6:30pm
Admission:
* General, BRL $4
* Students, BRL $2
* Seniors (60 and older) and children (10 and under), free

The Linha Turismo bus stops at the Museu, and comes around every 30 minutes.

Curitiba, Parana - Brazil

by lichinga

The "Capital Ecologica", i.e. the ecological capital: this is the way people from Curitiba define their home city, due to the high sense of neatness and environment conscience that reigns all over the city. It's been the distinctive sign of Curitiba in the recent years, together with good administration and a high sense of self-identification in the city itself.
Curitiba, capital town of the Parana state in the Southern region of Brazil (450 km southbound from Sao Paulo, 900 km from Rio de Janeiro) has been growing at an astonishing rate of 6.5 % in the latest 25 years, it has now nearly 2,000,000 inhabitants and its landscape seems very modern and attractive.
As in any Brazilian city, the social conflicts are strong and the distance between rich and poor people is so wide there's almost no hope to see it reducing in the near future. Curitiba makes these differences to seem less evident than anywhere else: somebody say it is due to the cold climate and the continuous rain, which makes life impossible to simple survivors!
