Praca Tiradentes

Nestled in Curitiba's Centro neighborhood, Praca Tiradentes is historically important to the city. Praca Tiradentes is regarded as the heart of Curitiba as this is the point that formed the core of the city, when it was founded in 1693. Legend has it that, the tribal leader of the Tinguis tribe, the original natives of this place, relinquished his authority to the Portuguese king at this square. The Catedral Basílica Menor Nossa Senhora da Luz, established in 1893, is the highlight of this square.
