  • After walking for a short trail through the Woods, you head to a quiet lake. Quiet and very beautiful landscape, a part of the structure of the area was under maintenance as some banks and a ramp. Brief stop for some pictures.

  • Could not classify as must-see, but this is an interesting site in Curitiba. The site is well organized and lack a guide to make the trip more attractive.

  • I am accurate and it took me 26 years Curitiba to visit the site! When I came to visit Curitiba, was one of the goals for this visit. Thought it was beautiful!

  • I've been on a weekend (22/07/2017) revisiting the Unilivre and I was disappointed to realize that the location does not press more for the safety of their patrons. Myself, I just twisting the knee for having held the leg in a will on the way, the bad state of conservation of the site ... I hope that's seen more carefully by those responsible.

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.
