It's a nice location because there are few museums near by honestly I passed by this area without even realizing simply because I was focused on the museums

Many of the buildings are from the colonial era and the place is just dripping with history. We went to the Sunday markets which covers most of the historical district and it was an excellent opportunity to browse the street stalls while absorbing the loads of historical significance of the place.

Curitiba is a modern city, so it's nice to see a Historic site. It's a great place to take picture because it has colonial-type buildings and lots of flowers. It's a quick stop and you can get there from the attraction bus you can take at Praça Tiradentes for just 35 reais.

There are not a lot of historical buildings in Curitiba and this is the best place to go to get a feel of how Curitiba must have been. Be aware that if you go on a Sunday you will not see the architecture as all the streets will be full on market stalls.

The buildings are very nice to see, well preserved and plenty of unique places that add up to the rich history of the center. Sadly, the center is filled with a lot of dubious people, from muggers to beggars to crackheads to kids sniffing glue, so you always have to be a little careful. I've been there a lot, even... More

Great colonial architecture abounds, as well as a plethora of shady characters and indigent people. Definitely not the place to be after sundown. A multitude of shops with some good deals will tempt you to buy something for everyone you know, and the favorable exchange rate reinforces this notion.
