Spanish Immigration to Curitiba

The largest wave of migration that Paraná has received from Spain was between the 50’s and the 60’s. The Spanish immigrants came mainly from Galicia, Andalucía and Cataluña regions and settled in the cities of Curitiba and Londrina.

The ones, who settled in Curitiba, dedicated themselves to trade, gastronomy, construction and services. The Spanish immigrants had a great tradition in civil engineering, working specially with stone and granite. Many important buildings in Curitiba were built by Spanish contractors, such as the Palace of Government, Public Library, Court of Auditors and Teatro Guaira.
