Catedral Basilica Menor Nossa Senhora da Gloria

Reviewed By Jean G - Atlanta, Georgia

This Cathedral is a landmark for Maringa, Parana State in Brazil.
Catedral de Maringá is a Roman Catholic Cathedral located in downtown Maringá, Paraná, Brazil, reaching 124 m in height ( 407 feet of height). It was completed in 1972 and is the tallest church in South America and the 16th tallest in the world.
Architect José Augusto Bellucci was inspired by the Soviet sputnik satellites when he designed the cathedral's modernist, conical shape.
If you go in a sunny day, quite easy to get in Maringa, the light plays inside this minimalist but impressive and tall structure turns concrete into a beautiful artwork.
Worth the trip.

Parque do Japao

Reviewed By Alberto_Hanai - Florianopolis, SC

The city has a lot of history with the Japanese immigrants and the park is a representation of it. The garden is very well maintained and the lake is full of japanese carps. You can walk around with your friends or family and they also allow dogs at the park, but they have to use dog leash and muzzle.
There is a restaurant in there as well and during the weekend people go there to have a lunch and taste some traditional japanese food.

Calil Haddad Theater

Reviewed By 462marcosp - Maringa, PR

Maringá é uma cidade de 400 mil habitantes e é uma pena que grandes peças ou espetáculos sejam tão raros aqui.... Não sei se a proximidade com Londrina acaba levando mais pro lado de lá, mas ao meu ver as duas cidades deveriam ter a cultura mais desenvolvida e promovida. Uma pena não ter acesso a grandes e bons espetáculos, pois os teatros da cidade comportariam! As instalações do teatro são muito boas. Só falta a prefeitura ou responsável manter o jardim sempre cuidado e aparado pra não deixar com aquela aparência de abandono!

Santa Cruz Chapel

Reviewed By Juliano O

Capela histórica, datada dos primórdios de Maringá, década de 1940, desde a época que este bairro era apenas um matagal. Localiza-se hoje na rua Santa Joaquina de Vedruna, 365, indo pela av. Brasil, logo apos a rotatória da Praça do Peladão.Vale uma visita.

Bosque das Grevileas

Reviewed By MaykonBM - Maringá, Parana, Brazil

Maybe Bosque das Grevíleas is just another park in the city of Maringá. But if you're looking for peace and silence, go for it! With an area of 44,600 m2, and having inside only one species of tree, the grevillea, the park is a nice place for a picnic with family, friends, and/or even puppies! It is a beautiful and unique location. It has an inside track for jogging, biking and place for gymnastics, and a beautiful view of bougainvilles surrounding the woods, which flowering of different colors adorn the look of the place.

Reviewed By lucyyuriko - Blumenau

Harmony forms...quiet and peaceful place. Visit the Japanese Rest Home for the elderly. Looks like a hotel...well cared people in a clean ambience. We felt good vibration and peace while visiting the Rest Home...people welcome visitors. It is also a good way to make good for the others.

Santuario Diocesano Nossa Senhora de Fatima

Reviewed By Aline E - Maringa, PR

O silêncio e o local "escondido" dão um ar de santidade ao local. Todas as vezes que fui a limpeza deixou a desejar e na parte de cima havia uma Via Sacra que foi destruida com o tempo. Mesmo assim, vale a visita.

Interactive Interdisciplinary Museum

Reviewed By Lawyer22 - Maringa, PR

O museu não é muito grande, mas é bem organizado e interessante. Há monitores em todas as seções. Exposições de física e matemática interativas, animais empalhados e uma parte maior sobre anatomia humana, além de um laboratório de insetos. Levei meu filho de 2 anos e meio e ele curtiu. Recomendo. É gratuito.
