Restoration of the Rua 24 Horas

When the “Rua 24 Horas” (24 Hours Street) was opened in Curitiba on September 12, 1991, it was something never seen before: a place where 24 hours a day everything is working, providing services, conveniences, food and leisure. At that time, we could hardly find anything working on a Saturday afternoon.

After years of neglect and several attempts to restore the place, yesterday was announced by the mayor of Curitiba that the “Rua 24 Horas” would be again a point of reference in Curitiba. The reform will start this Wednesday (2) with an investment of $ 3.84 million made by the city of Curitiba.

There will be deployed a cafe, bookstore, post office, tourist center information and a cultural space. The reform will maintain the architectural characteristics of space. Tourists will find a series of services such as information about the city, and sales of handicrafts and regional products.
