The building is great and important, and it is very impressive. During the day it is a safe place to pass, at night it gets tacky with tons of crackheads and junkie prostitutes who flock the barrio...

The Federal University was founded in 1912, more than 100 years ago, when the State of Paraná was a new born territory. It was given to the local people in change for the territorial area given to the foundation of the state of Santa Catarina, after the Federalist Revolution. Nowadays it is one of the most important universities of Brazil.

Just see around the University is great. The classic architecture recalls the Greek spaces and it is on the downtown.

Walking downtown is different and you'll see culture, buildings and famous candies. I hope you enjoy start your walking from UFPR and the square around it. Then continuing by XV de Novembro street and go to Osório square. Don't miss to eat a candy and drink a juice or, whoever a lunch. This street has several places to eat snacks,... More

It's the Lawyer School in Curitiba, the buinding is the Curitiba's symbol, greek-roman style at downtown. Anciently, it was the seat from the Federal University of State Paraná, the first University from Brazil.

Got here after walking through a nice touristy area full of shops. The building is very big and overlooks the gardens which are scattered with various monuments and statues. Only downside was the few homeless guys sat around the park. Lots of street traders here too selling art and crafts and tat which was a bonus.
