Curitiba, an amazing city in Brazil.

In the south of Brazil, Curitiba is one of the most amazing city in South América.
One of the most prosperous and organized cities in Brazil. Curitiba is also a world-wide example in urbanism solutions, education and environment.

The population of Curitiba is 1.8 million people and the metropolitan area over 3.5 million.





































































































































The photos are mine... all in 2008!
Thanks =)

I've heard of this city, very interesting.

I wonder if you can you tell me the denomination of the church in the lower right hand corner of this pic? It looks Orthodox.



Great tour
