The Portal of Passeio Publico

This photo was taken on a Sunday from the top of our double decker bus.

Gone are the days when Sunday in Curitiba was synonymous of empty streets. Nowadays wherever you go, you will find big crowds enjoying the city. The Passeio Público is an important park of Curitiba and its portal is a true copy of the Dogs' Cemetery Gate in Paris. Built in 1913, its style is art nouveau and was designed by the German architect Friedrich Kirchgassner.
