A CITY WITH RECOGNIZED POTENTIAL

Located in the North of the State, Londrina was founded in 1934. It received immigrants of different nationalities, mainly Italians, Portuguese, Japanese, Germans and Arabs. It is the largest city in the Interior of Paraná, with 500 thousand inhabitants. This important economic center stands out for agricultural production. The purple soil, extremely fertile, was decisive for the foundation and growth of the region. Londrina is a modern, dynamic and developed city, with a look to the future, without forgetting its roots and the environment. Therefore, some of the best walks and postcards are surrounded by the green of the Atlantic Forest.
