Mercês District

Due to a request, I went to Mercês District to make some pictures and today I will post about this important neighborhood of Curitiba.

Since the 18th century the inhabitants of this region are known for devotion to Our Lady of Mercy. In the 19th century, several families of German immigrants settled in the region. In 1929, the district won the Church of Our Lady of Mercy, built by Capuchin friars  in 1951.

This district is close to Curitiba Downtown where important avenues pass. Leaving those avenues, we will still find a neighborhood with very quiet streets and predominantly residential.
