Passeio Publico, Curitiba

#7 of 19 in Parks in Curitiba
Built on top of a lagoon, Passeio Publico was considered an important urban development in the 18th century because it replaced a body of water that was a hotbed of disease due to its insect population.  Master Valentim designed the park with passion and care. The stunning Roccoco gates still stand at the park’s entrance while much of the interior's original plan is still intact. Two fountains take center stage: Fonte dos Amores and Fonte dos Jacarés. Valentim also added a number of bronze sculptures mimicking nature throughout the park. In the 19th century, Auguste François Marie Glaziou was commissioned to give the park an update. However, he opted to keep the statuary and simply converted the restrictive design of the flora into a more natural arrangement for the Romantic era. Passeio Publico is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Curitiba Edition.

  • Lovely city park. There you can see exotic birds and other animals. A small pond in the inside with small islets. There you can have a good time and relax.

  • Calm and organized. Very good for walking. Is the oldest and one of the characteristic of the city parks. Worth knowing!

  • Quiet place and interesting for a walk with the family. On foot or by bike, do a good walk. Also has a terráreo and an aquarium, all in the middle of trees and exotic plants.
