    Curitiba is the capital and largest city in the Brazilian state of Paraná, located in the South of Brazil. It is well regarded for its solutions in sustainability and for its high level of human development as well as it stands as an important gastronomic and cultural center.

    Curitiba's Attractions:

    The Paraná state capital brings an European charm that sets it apart from most of Brazil. Curitiba is full of sights such as the Opera House wire, Oscar Niemeyer Museum, the Botanical Gardens and several parks scattered throughout the city's neighborhoods. And you can check all this in a city tour.

    The city and the environment are in perfect harmony. This connection has become a tourist attraction on its own. And with the infrastructure in place to meet the needs not only of residents but from tourists alike, Curitiba is very well prepared to welcome visitors.

    Good suggestions include visits to the Telecommunication Tower of Curitiba for a panoramic view of the city on a clear day; and the Oscar Niemeyer Museum, a cultural institution of international significance by its magnificence, beauty, and the importance of its collection.

    Only a few hours away, you can visit beautiful cities. In Ponta Grossa, located 100km (62 miles) from Curitiba, you find the Vila Velha State Park, the main natural attraction of the region, where you can take a closer look at large craters with exuberant vegetation and groundwater, beautiful rock formations with varying contours, as well as Lagoa Dourada (Golden Pond), which gets its name from its glinting golden waters from the reflection of the sunset.

    A few kilometers from Curitiba, you also find the historic city of Morretes. You can get there by car or taking a train by the railway inside the ecological reserve of Serra do Mar, in all its charm. Both ways will guarantee beautiful scenery and fantastic photos.

    Curitiba's Climate and Temperature:

    Curitiba's altitude is almost 1km, and the city has a rainy spring with temperatures between 10 and 25 Celsius.

    Curitiba's local cuisine:

    The menu brings surprises to visitors for being so varied. The dishes of the local cuisine are a reflection of the history of the municipality and the typical foods, themselves, are very tasty. Curitiba's cuisine has mainly Italian and German inspiration.

    The Barreado is very recommended. It is a very popular all over the State of Paraná, the "Barreado" consists of several cuts of beef slowly cooked over 12 hours on a clay pan. Manioc flour added with water is used to seal the pan, preventing steam from coming out. Once done the meat just falls apart. To be served, you add manioc flour and put the broth along with the meat on top of it.
