Revitalized in 2008, the Praça Tiradentes recovers its importance and its significance for the city of Curitiba. The work featured the accompaniment of archaeologists from UFPR (Federal University of Parana), that during the excavations, found objects related to the occupation of the first residents. More significant of the findings, are the remains of pavements corresponding to the first urbanization of the area, dating from the second half of the nineteenth century. Although fragmentary, the pavements have allowed the understanding of urban layout deployed. These remains are now on display in the square, under the protection of a glass display (as shown in photo above).
