The Castle of Batel

Built in the 1920's in a land with almost 10,000 m2, by the Herbalist and grower Luiz Guimaraes, who after that trip to France was impressed by the castles of the Loire. In 1928, the house was opened. Authorities in Brazil and abroad stayed in the castle, which was overturned in 1974 by the Historical and Artistic Heritage of Paraná. The building was restored and expanded, now housing a center of events.

  1. A European palace is not something I would have expected to see in Brazil. Amazing!
