Curitiba Travel Guide

Historic quarter

Of course Curitiba have things to be proud of. It still has colonial era buildings, best seen in the Historic quarter of the Largo da Ordem. Here you can check out artisanal shops in historic buildings or eat and drink while people watching.

Explore its historic quarter, filled with beautiful 18th and 19th century architecture and museums is an amazing experience, Curitiba has a distinctly European feel to it and many of its preserved buildings are very reminiscent of its colonial past.

The cathedral is lovely and it is found at the historic quarter. The Metropolitan Cathedral of Curitiba, erected in 1894, was inspired by that of Barcelona. Lovely buildings with cobbled streets, some nice fountains, statues, churches, trees and for the first time – interesting arty shops.

Igreja da Ordem Terceira de São Francisco das Chagas, it is the oldest building in the city, and a stunning example of ecclesiastical design. On Largo Cel. Enéas, also known as Largo da Ordem, is the Franciscan church of São Francisco de Chagas (1737), with the adjoining Museum of Sacred Art; the 18th century church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário; and the Casa Rosário Martins (also 18th century), the second oldest house in the city, with exhibition rooms and the city's historical archives.
