Praça Tiradentes

Praca Tiradentes

This is often considered the very center of Curitiba, and part of the current Historic Sector, where the city began. The site now has several historic statues of figures that contributed to the growth of the city and has plenty of land marks around the square. Along with statues of historic figures, there is a prominent Cross of Christ, which symbolises power that was legally appointed by the King of Portugal, on March 29, 1693.

On the north end of this square, lies Basilica Cathedral Minor of Our Lady of Light, built in 1993. In 1880, the emperor D. Pedro II visited the city and the square became known as D. Pedro II. Nine years later, after the republic was created, it was renamed to the current name of Tiradentes Square.

According to legend, the site was chosen by the chief Tindiquera of the tribe Tingui, for the transfer of the first inhabitants to the region, who were camped out on the river Atuba, in the current neighbourhood of Bairro Alto.  There is now a park named after the tribe, Tingüi Parque which also houses the Ukrainian Memorial.

The square also has a bus terminal and is the starting point for the tourism line. This makes it a good spot for visitors to begin their city tour.
