A stately buiding created in the style of the Portuguese court. Their café is relaxing and they ussually have a cultural affair going on, a concert, exhibit, or another equally enjoyable affair.

Sesc and Senac were responsible for restore this major house in the heart of Curitiba. Amazing cafe, with a lot of choices and good prices. A cultural center that offers expositions and movies. Astonishing place to visit in historical Curitiba.

The building has been restaured in recent years and now houses a cultural center. It can be visited for free. The third floor houses nice painting in the ceiling.
