Praca da Espanha, Curitiba

4.1
#11 of 70 in Sightseeing in Curitiba
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

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.

  • Has a playground for kids to play and a water fountain where people can cool off. Some grassy areas to sit where there are a lot of adolescents hanging out. Nearby there are plenty of bars and restaurants and the place to get ice cream and popcorn.
  • The environment is excellent, a good place to sit and talk or to read something. It lacks better parking options. Nearby there are several different restaurants and places to eat a meal or a desert.
  • Great for spending some time at the end of the day. Lot of options for happy hour.
  • Beautiful spot in downtown, good place to sit and have a beer.
  • Nice place, relatively good to hang out and relatively safe
