Praca da Espanha, Curitiba

3.9
#37 of 235 in Things to do in Curitiba
Praca da Espanha is a gathering place for the city that vibrates with action in the evening hours and serves up great cuisine and antiques in the daylight hours. Check out a restaurant serving local fare, or take a break from meat with a visit to the Japanese dining joint. These aren't your only two options, the plaza is surrounded with the sweet smells of cooking. You'll have no trouble finding a perfectly mixed cocktail either as bars are interspersed between the eating places. All these watering holes are popular with the local party crowd and you'll regularly see dancing in the windows accompanied by cheery voices of friends meeting and tourists celebrating their luck. During the day, events are held in the plaza and you'll often find book and antique stalls selling one-of-a-kind treasures.  It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Praca da Espanha and many more Curitiba attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Curitiba trip builder.

    A very beautiful region of the city, there are several bars and restaurants surrounding the square. Can be a little insecure, always keep an eye on your belongings.

    The square is very beautiful, has a fountain and even a library (reading). Surrounded by bars and restaurants, has fair of antiques and vintage car exhibition on Saturdays. You can walk to the Center by Carlos de Carvalho (the sidewalk has been renewed).

    If you like flaunting places, you'll love. Already if you prefer places like me, simpler and closer to the reality of society, I don't know if you'll like a lot. Is the typical place that people go to drink, put the bubbly on the bucket, sit in the square and live a "middle-class alternative." I didn't like. Nevertheless, there are some bars and restaurants close, dear. Who is backpacker like me, you don't want to pay 15 Kings in a chopp and 8 real in a bottle of water.

Where to stay in Curitiba

Wherever you choose to stay in the city, you'll be able to get from place to place on your Curitiba itinerary in a breeze, thanks to the rapid bus transit system. Most higher-end hotels sit in or very close to the city center, especially along the pedestrianized main street of Rua XV de Novembro. Stay here if you want quick access to the best shopping strip in town. You can look slightly out of the center, in the neighborhoods of Batel and Seminário, to mingle with the city's posh crowd. Curitiba's continuing growth in popularity with younger tourists means you can now find any number of budget youth hostels, mainly concentrated in the center and inner suburbs.
