Curitiba (map) is the capital of *Paraná. If you’re heading for Iguaçu Falls from Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo, it’s worth stopping by for a day or two.

Curitiba is one of the few Brazilian cities with a very high Human Development Index and in 2010 it was awarded the Global Sustainable City Award. According to US magazine Reader’s Digest, Curitiba is the best “Brazilian Big City” in which to live.

There is a great cidade velha (old city, map) in the center which is in a very good state, considering the fact that it’s been around for over 3 centuries. There is a huge arts and crafts fair every Sunday in the old city that is well worth visiting.

Historic Area, Largo da Ordem (map) / Praça Coronel Enéas, Praça Garibaldi (map) – São Francisco. Complex with the oldest buildings in the city.

Ópera de Arame / Teatro De Arame (map) – one of the emblematic symbols of Curitiba, with tubular structure and transparent ceiling, of great beauty. Inaugurated in 1992, it caters for all types of shows, between lakes, typical vegetation and cascades, on a unique landscape.

Tiradentes Square (map), the main square in Curitiba and also its birthplace. On the north end of this square, lies Basilica Cathedral Minor of Our Lady of Light, centennial in 1993. Anciently known as Largo da Matriz, the square is the city’s initial landmark.

Rua 24 Horas (24 Horas Street, map). The Street that never sleeps is the synthesis of a city which also never sleeps. It is 120 meters long and 12 meters wide. There are 34 shops that are open eternally, from the daybreak sandwich to the bank withdrawal; from the pharmacy to the florist; from books to milk for the children.

The Serra Verde Express, a train to the coastal town of *Morretes (map), makes an excellent day trip and is for many tourists the main reason to visit Curitiba. On Sundays (?) the train continues to Paranaguá, although the last bit between Morretes and Paranaguá is not very scenic.

Curitiba receives ample rain, there’s no dry season, and it is rare to go more than 5 days without showers. Periods of a steady light rain or drizzle may last several weeks, typically foggy and grey, somewhat similar to London weather. The months when it usually rains more in Curitiba are between October and March.

THE BEST TRAIN RIDE IN BRAZIL | Serra Verde Express (Curitiba – Morretes).

Definitely a bucket list experience in Brazil! The train from Curitiba to Morretes is an absolutely stunning journey through the Atlantic forest biome and can be done in style with glass train carriages and meal service. This is the most popular day trip out of Curitiba and now I can see why. Morretes is a very charming colonial city where you feel like you are stepping back in time. Make sure you also try a local culinary specialty called Barreado. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience!
