Graciosa Road, known as PR-410 Road, connects the city of Curitiba to the cities of Morretes and Antonina. It crosses a preserved area from the Atlantic Forest, listed as Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
The road is 37 km from Curitiba. It is easy to find the road due to its beautiful entrance gate through this small piece of paradise. The 1,050 m altitude descent of the Serra do Mar, the sinous curves and its pavement (sometimes stones, sometimes asphalt) are an invitation to slow down and enjoy the flowering slopes, peaks, Rivers, waterfalls, animals, among other beauties.
Along the road, there are 6 lookout points, kiosks where sell local products and barbecue grills. The road ends in São João da Graciosa, where you can stay in cozy lodges, go for a tour or come back another time.
Try to arrive before 9am to use the barbecue grill and bring yours grilles and supplies.
