Little chapel the Saint Pope Jean Paul visited and prayed. The surrounding woods are peaceful and well kept. Only regret is an unsightly statue of the Saint with huge fake hands! What were they thinking of?

This a mixture between a park, in which you can rest, walk or jog, with Polish style country houses. If you have never seen this kind of scenery, it is worth seeing, but if you are familiar with it, you can skip this place.

This is a "must go" Place! Very peacefull and a wonderfull place with many trees and old wood houses. You'll take many pictures form this place. Enjoy the nature and feel the harmony. Papa blessed this place and it will be blessed forever!

It's very close to the museum, a 5 minute walk. The park has little houses that were imported from Poland. And the Pope came to visit it, John Paul.

You don't have to be a Catholic to fall in love with this place that commemorates the Pope's visit. Curitiba is famous for its manicured nature and this place is proof of that.

Marvelous tribute to some of the original settlers in this region. Many homes, barns, all will authentic decorations. Beautiful park surrounding.

Very nice little garden with some typical old Polish structures. Quite a few things there connected to the visit of John Paul II to Curitiba. Worth a stroll on a nice day.
