The road must be traveled without haste, enjoying nature, landscapes and stopping at the stop point to get off the car and enjoy each location path. On the way, enjoy the beautiful scenery of the sea, totally covered by rainforest. The Graciosa highway is full of curves and beautiful scenery. Parana has great views.

1.See the Iguazu Falls

It’s worth the visit in Parana. Wonderful location, perfect view. In contact with nature. You can not visit Foz do Iguaçu and not get to know this place! It really is indescribable the ride up to the falls. Recommend macro ride where you ride a boat up to the rapids below the falls.It is a piece of heaven on earth is worth and have to be careful to not fall. What a wonderful place, unique experience to see how God is perfect in his creation is priceless.

6.Relax at Botanical Garden of Curitiba

It is the flagship place with a European feel and very well maintained. Admission is free and the place is worth the visit. Many species of native plants to meet.

7.Go to Cathedral of Our Lady of Glory

Strolling through the historic center of Curitiba had the pleasure to meet the Metropolitan Cathedral of Curitiba. A beautiful church with a richly decorated interior. The stained glass windows are beautiful and are in perfect conditions. For those who admire religious art and architecture as well as baroque art can not fail to see the Eucharist.

8.View the Wire Opera House

The Wire Opera House is one of the great tourist options in Curitiba. The visit is very fast! The place is beautiful, but it has nothing to do. Just take pictures and go. Worth visiting for amazing photos! The attraction is a circular theater, built of steel pipes and metal structure. It has a beautiful artificial lake.

9.See the State Park of Vila Velha

The strong point of this park is the location. Is in the historic center, you do not need to use the car to go out at night. This is great because of the difficulty of parking in the historic center. The standard site are older and smaller, not enjoyed, but the superior are more spacious and brand new. Worth the travel in the state park.

10.Go to the Red Windmill of Parana

You have a lot to see, but the red windmill is cute and appealing, with valley passage in front and in which you can take a picture. It is an attraction for those tired of staying in the hotel but I would not trade the all inclusive and the beaches to take a picture with a red windmill in Parana in Brazil.

Parana is a beautiful place, beauty to behold. Starting with the entry portal you will love it. Make travel unhurriedly, pausing to enjoy the river that borders it. Make all your curves between mountains and cliffs covered by preserved forest, and with a lot of history, culminating in a pleasant lunch in Morretes is priceless, a true relax.

Have a good trip and travel!
